      Interesting interview: Tracey is very nice and interesting person.
      Thank you for your time.

      BTW: Charles, I don't know if there is a "suggestion box" for interviews... so I just ask here: I would very much like listening to an interview to Larry Osterman. I recently read a quality essay he wrote on Engineering 7 Blog:

      Engineering 7: A view from the bottom
      http://blogs.msdn.com/e7/archive/2008/10/15/engineering-7-a-view-from-the-bottom.aspx

      and he maintains an interesting blog, too.

      So it would be great to have an interview with Larry, ranging from technical things to the history of Windows development (I read that he is a Microsoft "veteran").

      And keep up this good interviewing job.
      Thanks!
