The Portable Old New Thing

I know I'm a little late on this one... 

During the recent Seattle area snow event, I was able to get safely down my hill to pick up my copy of Raymond's book "The Old New Thing: Practical Development Throughout the Evolution of Windows" and get back up the hill to start reading.

Having worked with Raymond on Windows 95 and other products, his book is a trip down memory lane as well as educational.  Chapter 2 (Selected Reminiscences on Windows 95), in particular, reminded me of many things I had thought that I had forgotten; most notably, the time bunny came to dinner.

Raymond, thanks for (finally) writing this book.  I highly recommend it to all Windows application developers.

Take care,
