Winnable Solitaire: Sink or Swim?
Software LEGEND Eric Sink (yes, I'm turning the tables and calling him a legend) invented 'Winnable Solitaire' -- a game of solitaire that guarantees that every hand can be solved.
He wrote on MSDN about his plans to take the idea to market -- and is now ready to report on his success. Did he make a million dollars? Read the follow up article to find out! (Hint: he's only sold six copies.)
If you've ever invented and released software yourself, this is very amusing stuff, with an affirming message: dismal early sales should not be taken to heart! Even a sure-fire idea will take time to find success.
