Joel Spolsky has a very interesting article on this, wherein he
reveals that there were (are?) two dialects of Hungarian notation in
Microsoft, Apps Hungarian and Systems Hungarian. Apps was invented by
Charles Simonyi for Word, and then the Systems guys perverted it and
used it for the Win32 API, leading to the awful and uselessly long
Hungarian that we have known to despise through any contact we've had
with the Win32 API or its thrice-damned successors.
