      I loved it how specific Ray was about that one piece of code. Can only come from a person, who lives and breathes that code every day... :)  and it was not just Windows 95 code, but there is DOS in the mix and Lotus 1-2-3... wow...

      I love how my Surface RT shipped with grpconv.exe, a tool for migrating Windows 3.1 Program Manager groups into Start Menu entries, despite the fact that there's no way to run Windows 3.1 on a Surface RT.
