First work in Windows was, mercifully, delayed until NT .

But the best fun was DOS - C w/inline assembler and also just make .COM file and C-callable function in assembly (a tiny graphics library for my FORTRAN) and the odd TSR.

The C/inline mainly went for the ROM BIOS and the incredible fun that offered; also, when in need of memory, using unused video memory.

The most fun, pound for pound, were the TSR's as they were for mischief. One of them kept rewriting the input buffer back to the command line backwards but stored the correct value, as well, so it still executed. My favorite, however, was one that took every eighth 'd' or 'D' and replaced it with an 'f' or 'F'. Just enough to cause havoc yet extremely hard to investigate unless you already knew what you were looking for.

Funny thing - that creating an annoyance was such a good time.
