Mark Zbikowski != Polish

[ #31404 ]
Unfortunatly I spend at least 30 minutes each day argueing with "the polish guy". Todays argument, among other things, was about the 'MZ' in EXE files. My "polish friend" stated that the guy was polish. I said he wasn't. I was right. It turns out MZ is Mark Zbikowski, a longtime employee of Microsoft and the original designer of the EXE format. The polish guy then responded that he was probably from polish descent. *cough* bullshit *cough*

  • Please tell me you settled the argument based on something other than whatever the most recent version of the wikipedia page was. The danger in that, of course, is that the winner is whoever's last edited the page to show themselves as being correct.
    • Actually I also googled for it and couldn't find any decent page that describes Marks family tree :)
