With this book, Raymond shares his knowledge, experience, and anecdotal stories, allowing all of us to get a better understanding of the operating system that affects millions of people every day. This book has something for everyone, is a casual read, and I highly recommend it!"
--Jeffrey Richter, Author/Consultant, Cofounder of Wintellect
"Very interesting read. Raymond tells the inside story of why Windows is the way it is."
--Eric Gunnerson, Program Manager, Microsoft Corporation
"Absolutely essential reading for understanding the history of Windows, its intricacies and quirks, and why they came about."
--Matt Pietrek, MSDN Magazine's Under the Hood Columnist
"Raymond Chen has become something of a legend in the software industry, and in this book you'll discover why. From his high-level reminiscences on the design of the Windows Start button to his low-level discussions of GlobalAlloc that only your inner-geek could love, The Old New Thing is a captivating collection of anecdotes that will help you to truly appreciate the difficulty inherent in designing and writing quality software."
--Stephen Toub, Technical Editor, MSDN Magazine
Why does Windows work the way it does? Why is Shut Down on the Start menu? (And why is there a Start button, anyway?) How can I tap into the dialog loop? Why does the GetWindowText function behave so strangely? Why are registry files called "hives"?
Many of Windows' quirks have perfectly logical explanations, rooted in history. Understand them, and you'll be more productive and a lot less frustrated. Raymond Chen--who's spent more than a decade on Microsoft's Windows development team--reveals the "hidden Windows" you need to know.
Chen's engaging style, deep insight, and thoughtful humor have made him one of the world's premier technology bloggers. Here he brings together behind-the-scenes explanations, invaluable technical advice, and illuminating anecdotes that bring Windows to life--and help you make the most of it.

Description du livre Pearson Education (US), United States, 2006. Paperback. Etat : New. Language: English. Brand new Book. There have been innumerable books, magazine articles, conference sessions, training classes, and online postings on how to program for Windows. There has been very little written, however, which explains the rationale behind why Windows works the way it does. It turns out that some of Windows' odder quirks have perfectly logical reasons behind them. Gaining an understanding of this will help Windows programmers develop better applications with less sweat and frustration. For years Raymond Chen has been explaining the "why" behind Windows in his blog, and explaining it in an engaging and captivating style, which has made him one of the premier bloggers in the technology world. Now Chen distills his years of experience in one book, packed with behind the scenes explanations that will be useful for any Windows programmer. Not only is this book practical, but its style and gentle humor make it a pleasure to read. The author will be promoting it on his blog, in his monthly column in TechNet Magazine, and through his many speaking engagements. Joel Spolsky, one of the most famous of all bloggers, has written a foreword for the book. N° de réf. du vendeur APC9780321440303
