Joel Spolsky’s First BillG Review

I love to read Joel Spolsky’s stuff – in addition to being a well known software developer, he’s an excellent writer and superb story teller. His ode to Bill Gates – “My First BillG Review” – is a blast from the past.  In addition to a really interesting story, you get to find out why the data functions in early versions of Excel work differently for January and February 1900.
