The old classics by James P. Hogan are holding up surprisingly well, such as the 25 year old Realtime Interrupt[^], or more than 40 years old (!) The Two Faces Of Tomorrow[^].
Nice picks, I'll add this to my list Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:

Another 40+ years old book that (contrary to the Hogan novels) never tried to be reliable, seen from a IT professional's point of view, is Thomas J. Ryan: The Adolescence Of P-1[^]. It is fun, but far more outdated than the Hogan books, and no longer in print; you must accept a used copy. If you come across it, read it just for fun - but I don't think it is worth going to extremes getting your own copy. (Rather, spend your money on Hogan!)
Even used one comes with big $. Wish there's digital versions.

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.
