He knows Windows

Cliff Saran Profile: Cliff Saran


Downtime was in the presence of programming deity yesterday, when we met someone who had actually written code for Windows. “It’s been my biggest achievement,” the Worthy One replied. Downtime askied which part of the 100 million plus lines of Windows code, he had programmed. Was it the mulit-tasking kernal, or the shared memory architecture, or some other equally fundamental thing, like the bloke on the Intel Ad who invented USB. “I did a three line bug fix.” 

“Bug says people are personally responsible for keeping themselves relevant.” Douglas Coupland, Microserfs.
