I'm a developer at Microsoft on Visual Studio. I am responsible for the native code debugger, the SQL debugger, plus much of the debugger's infrastructure. I've been a debugger developer at MS for six years, plus for other people many years before. Anyone used the 68k versions of HiSoft Devpac in the early 80s? That was me.
