He meant that PoSV is a fictionalised, sanitised, MS-approved account
and not very reliable.

As is MS' own history. Written by the winners, etc.

However, I'd say PoSV will give the clueless more of a general idea
than most people have. It's 40y ago now; that means it is most people
in tech were born. Only senior managers remember that far back, and
they don't know the difference between "Windows" and "Gates" (ha ha).
