Summary:My colleague Doron Holan has started writing about kernel mode driver programming, and it looks like he's jumping in with both feet. I have to admit that I don't understand what he's saying (not being a kernel-mode person myself), but I can assure you that he knows what he's talking about. (Note that he's writing...

My colleague Doron Holan has started writing about kernel mode driver programming, and it looks like he's jumping in with both feet. I have to admit that I don't understand what he's saying (not being a kernel-mode person myself), but I can assure you that he knows what he's talking about.

(Note that he's writing about driver programming, so if you're just looking for an XYZ driver, he won't be able to help you. On the other hand, if you are writing the XYZ driver, then the information he has may prove useful after all.)

Even though I've known Doron for several years, I think we've met face-to-face a total of four times. That's what happens when your interactions with someone take place nearly entirely over email. And there's a good chance that when I do meet him in person, I'll pronounce his name wrong. (He seems to be okay with it, though. Or he hides it well.)

  3. Hey, we’ve NEVER met F2F as far as I know (despite countless emails :))

WHY DID I DUPLICATE THIS CONTENT HERE? Let me first say this site has never had anything to sell and has never shown ads of any kind. I have nothing monetarily to gain by duplicating content here. Because I had made my own local copy of this content throughout the years, for ease of using tools like grep, I decided to put it online after I discovered some of the original content previously and publicly available, had disappeared approximately early to mid 2019. At the same time, I present the content in an easily accessible theme-agnostic way.

The information provided by Raymond's blog is, for all practical purposes, more authoritative on Windows Development than Microsoft's own MSDN documentation and should be considered supplemental reading to that documentation. The wealth of missing details provided by this blog that Microsoft could not or did not document about Windows over the years is vital enough, many would agree an online "backup" of these details is a necessary endeavor.
