James (Jim) Plamondon – Mr. Plamondon later described his reasons for joining Microsoft as follows: „When Windows 3.0 caught fire, I realized that no matter how good my code, it would fail commercially if it targeted the wrong platform – so I became very interested in how platforms gained market dominance. Because Microsoft clearly understood how to make its platforms ‘win,’ in 1992. I joined its Developer Relations Group (DRG). There, I designed and executed strategies that established Microsoft’s new platform technologies as de facto industry standards, and gave internal [i.e., Microsoft-only] courses on the theory and practice of doing so.”
