I'm amused by that "what's wrong with the wheel" commant so much I may just have to re-use it mysqlf someday

Once upon a time I wrote code with the same mindset as the original poster. But two years ago I stopped using Windows for anything serious. And since then I've learned to trust the work of others, so I'm now able to take that little extra effort to ensure others can trust my code.

So I think the reinventing mindset stems from the fact that with Windows you can never be assured something outside your control will do it's job properly, and that writing what you need is simpler than learning all there is to know.
