They get support from elsewhere - Usenet, mailing lists, etc. - just like the vast majority of Linux users who have no corporate support or toll-free numbers or email addresses. Or they're stuck with that last...
Really?? Well, then you already knew what it meant then didn't you.
So, you are resorting to spelling flames now? How lame.
Of course they do. Read their press announcements from time to time.
Yeah, up here.
No, I analyze where companies sit in their delusions and what their marketing depts are up to. If you knew what marketing meant, you'd understand that distortions of facts, specifications, and what the product does happens to be their bag.
Got any proof that Linux has copied from windows?? It seems to me that M$ copied quite a bit from VMS to create NT. Yet M$ calls it innovation. For their uses 'Theft' == 'Innovation'.
Most likely will fail. Most other cross-platform attempts by M$ have failed in the past, so I don't see any of these making it.
More in touch than any M$ apologist will ever be.
IEEE-ANSI government committees... last one was back in the 80's over Fortran-90. You seem to bring up standards yet you don't know that standards can be driven by one company or several companies. Most companies either can't afford to participate, due to the lack of paid experts, or are not interested in forming new standards. And M$ was there at the time wanting to add to the standards that other companies didn't want added to their list of headaches. At the time we considered the DEC Fortran as a superset of Fortran-77 and also considered DEC more of an expert in this field than M$. Eventually M$ left Fortran altogether. What they wanted was some of their own operating system dependent calls to become a standard. What Cheek!!

billwg yeah, huyuck, huyuck... your humour is just like Goofy eh?? No, you are just being pigheaded about the fact is all. M$ has more BSD code parked in their products than...
No, it was just good old fashioned humour... something that seems to escape you.
No, he ages... something he can't stop or buy.
