I had the distinct privilege of spending some time with Kraig Brockschmidt a long time Microsoftie who wrote the scientific calculator for Windows 3! He describes some of his early work as a support engineer, the joys of the early OS, and how that revision of the calculator came about. He was kind enough to send in some early-days photos that we happily interleaved into the video. I hope you enjoy our discussion as much as I did!
Some handy links:

- Kraig's autobiographical book, Mystic Microsoft, that has lots of stories about his early days at Microsoft: http://www.mysticmicrosoft.com.
