We thank the divine, and other mere mortals with divine abilities.
Special thanks to everyone at Wiley for helping us put this book together. Acquisitions editor Kyle Looper and project editor Mark Enochs kept everything on track. Thanks go to the editorial team, including copy editors Jen Riggs and John Edwards, and technical editor James Russell.
Thanks go to our families and friends for allowing us to focus on our writing without deserting us. We express our appreciation to them all.
Geetesh wishes to thank his offi ce staff who helped him take the time off to write this book as well as the amazing bunch of other Microsoft MVPs who are too numerous to be listed here.
Jim wishes to extend special thanks to the University at Buffalo for allowing leave to work on the book. The University at Buffalo is truly one of the best places to work or attend.
We thank the Macintosh Business Unit of Microsoft, who created the subject matter of the book, and Microsoft Corporation for the awesome MVP program, without which it is unlikely the authors would have been able to meet and collaborate. And we also thank Apple for creating an enriching OS platform.
Finally, both the authors thank each other!
