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!
