In general, it's rather strange that I found more information in Russian than in English.

Hi!

No  - that is known history.
The USSR had worldwide the best eduction in natural science.
Today the percentage of students  of computer science in the USA with an US-Passport is: 5% !!!

In the early days of the web there were a lot of russian pages with great Delphi-solutions. Especially for Low-Level-Jobs. You would not find them in other languages.

Like one ingenious pearl:
A soundcard driver for the PC speaker .....
Poor man's solution.....

I totally agree with you.

Also I am impressed by the will of Russians to finish things that they started and to share their knowledge  .
For example, in the MSEgui project, the only complete and clear documentations + examples are in Russian.

I remember a debate about the ink-pens used for the Apollo missions (no tablets in those time, all was on paper).
Millions of dollars spent to find a system that works in weightlessness .

The Russian solution, just as effective, was to use pencils.

You are right of course, I was thinking of how to minimize windows for other programs not handling it in the current program.
