In 1993, Windows NT was new and seemed surprisingly good to me, so I wrote a book about it. Not everyone agreed with me—it seemed that everyone else “knew” that Novell was the king and would be forever, so when I heard that a little press out of Colorado was launching an NT-oriented magazine, I called them up and asked (okay, maybe there was some begging) if they would let me write a few articles for their new periodical. They said yes, and fifteen years and about a half a thousand columns later, I have to say that one of the things that I’m most proud of in my professional life is having been a small part of helping to create what is unquestionably the number one independent Windows resource for the IT community. Thanks, Windows IT Pro, and here’s to many more!” —Mark Minasi
