    Without having watched the video I’m going to go ahead and assume that this is the AARD code.

    Larry Osterman (principal engineer at Microsoft) wrote an apologia for the AARD code back in 2004: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/archive/blogs/larryosterman/aardvarks-in-your-code

    Basically, the argument was that “Windows manipulates and depends on core pieces of MS-DOS, and running on an alternative DOS would likely break things and degrade the Windows experience.”
