Windows NT has ever used the Mach kernel.   You probably read some
comparisons between the design of the Windows NT Executive and the Mach
kernel -- the latter because Mach was/is the best-known microkernel
system.  

The Windows NT Executive is not a microkernel, but more of a hybrid,
much like Darwin is (although Darwin actually _does_ use Mach code).
