Does anyone know if Vista uses the NT kernel or if they wrote an entirely new one?

It uses the NT kernel. NT 6.0 it has been referred to.

Writing a new kernel is hardly something you want to do. They did rewrite the networking stack, with the result that bug which were fixed back in Windows 95 popped up again.

The kernel has had some changes made to it. The most annoying change is that the durned thing will insist on scanning and fixing your flash drive if you've used it in an XP system.

Microsoft is probably writing a new kernel for an OS. It just won't be out for a long time.

By definition. The current OS is a Upgraded Kernel, which one could argue is new. Microsoft is currently working on a number of small projects Built around the micro-kernel, "Singularity". Search for that on Google and or Altavista.
