also, "everyone does it" is an excuse that no one over the age 7
should use. imitating blindly -- a.k.a monkey-see-monkey-do
(apologies to monkeys) -- seems to happen when we are unaware,
undisciplined, lazy or panicked. it is how stampedes happen. it's ok
if you're in a herd, can't see much and trying to avoid a predator;
not so for designing software.

a good example can be found in an episode of a UW TV program called
"behind the code", produced by MS and UW, where one of the original
developers of NT (hardware and drivers) recalls a kernel crash that
was caused by bad MS sample code that ended up in several driver by
different vendors.

Это они на самом деле фингю говорят. Любой человек, видевший документацию ко всяким интерфейсам вообще, и от МС и Интела в особенности, это подтвердит. Они ж ни фига толком не рассказывают, как и что там работает (да, наверное, и сами не знают). Поэтому единственный выход - копировать из примеров и надеяться, что оно как-то чудом будет работать.
