The author is Gordon Letwin, basically the guy behind Microsoft's original OS/2 implementation, before they jumped ship from IBM and went with Windows.

So this is a little ironic:

> Your work won't be canceled due to some political/financial upheaval, nor just used in-house; your work will be used by millions of people.

His Inside OS/2 is well worth reading, not least of which for the gory details of how to shoehorn a "modern" OS into an 80286. From the front cover, he looks like a guy who could have written the whole OS himself in a weekend.

The back cover has a great quote from Gates calling OS/2 "the OS for the next 1000 great applications".

Awesome find, BioGeek.
