We hope you've enjoyed this week of getting to know Larry Osterman a bit better.
We asked Larry about times he's had working interactions with Bill Gates (co-founder of Microsoft).
Larry remembered one interaction he had back when he was a coder on the DOS networking stack in LAN Manager 2.0.
Ahh, the good old days when you only had 640k of RAM to fit into. Sure is different from today when Microsoft
owns computers that have a terabyte of RAM.
Actually, between the filming of this video, and its display here,
Larry had dinner with Gates and a group of other 20-year-veterans of Microsoft.
Congrats to you all! Who will be next on Channel 9? Tune in next week. Bert Keely, one of the visionaries behind the Tablet PC will be.
Have a great weekend.
