I wish I was there...

...but at the original presentation I was only 5!
Surely, this amusing presentation by Charles Petzold is a bit late =) , but I've found it fashinating. Hope we'll not lost memories from the early programming days, as too often happens in many other fields!
I've never used Windows 1.0, my first version was Windows 386, a re-compiled verision of Windows 2.0 (which was meant to run on 286, I believe). I still have diskettes and manuals!

I grew as a computer appasionate first, and as a computer programmer later, in the Windows world, so no surprise if I try my best to defend it againts useless attacks on how buggy or annoying or insecure...or whatever is Windows!

Happy birthday Windows!
