The series gets my vote. I have all three books, but only read the first one so far.

The only criticism I have is its unnecessary "guy gets the girl at the end" side-story that I felt was rather contrived, and only present in hopes that Hollywood would buy the movie rights and it's only there bring some general appeal for the masses.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
