Wasn't it standard practice at Microsoft to pay
teams by the code size produced?? That's why
Windows is so huge, i'm sure a good games
programmer could fit it and all its graphics on
a floppy. Anyone remember what Andrew Braybrook
used to fit in a Commodore 64 game? Ah... those
were the days. People cared about making software
WORK and making it SMALL. Now they just want a
bigger budget than the other team. :o)
