I was an OS/2 developer from about 1.1 to Warp 3.  One thing that
impressed me about the whole package was the almost painstakingly
clearly-written documentation for developers.  This was when a devkit
for OS/2 was a big box full of manuals and lots of floppies.

Sadly, I can't claim that Microsoft exhibited the same amount of care
with Windows documentation.
