What is it like to work with Microsoft’s Dave Cutler?

Dave is one of the most inspiring people I worked with (not closely, to be clear). Not only did he lead the team that built a new OS from scratch that was still compatible with DOS-based Windows, with many features on day one that took years to arrive in competitor’s products, he personally designed and coded the portable, multithreading, multiprocessor, secure NT kernel. He was brilliant.


Ex-Microsoft programmer Dave Plummer: I wrote Task Manager

The Microsoft developer who wrote Task Manager, along with other utilities and games, has popped up to „write this stuff down before I forget it all“.

A post on Reddit goes into detail about the tool, familiar to every Windows expert, which if you are lucky lets you terminate errant applications or processes, as well as providing some handy stats on how your PC is or is not performing.

Dave Plummer, or davepl, „started in MS-DOS in 1993 and spent a little more than a decade at Microsoft, leaving after Server 2003“, he told the University of Regina. He talked about the challenges of „coding for a billion machines“, saying: „It’s like you’re building one bull to be released into an infinite number of china shops.“
