comment What's the historical reason of including DOS-stub in PE images?
I'm getting old and my memory is not what it once was but I seem to recall that if one tried to run a Windows application (like Word) in DOS then it would start up Windows and run. Maybe that was the reason - it was a convenience for users who spent most of their time in DOS.

comment Break on default case in switch
@Robin Putting in a comma is different. If it is not there and someone adds a new value to an array then they will get a compile error. However there will be no compile error if the previous case statement is missing a break - so it would be possible for this to be missed and cause run-time errors.
