Trivial question for research project - Windows 7 Lines of Code

Hi Everyone,

I apologize for asking such a trivial question here but it is required as part of my empirical research class at school.  Does anyone know, with verifiable proof, how many lines of code are in Windows 7?  If that information is still a trade secret or something, does anyone know how many lines in Vista?

Thanks very much,

Honestly, its hard to say, since no one person is in control of Windows at Microsoft. The operating system is made up of various feature teams that makes it difficult to pin-point an accurate number for you.
