Well, that truly does explain THAT bit. M$ being "not on time" with a
project or with code. Yeppers. "Fashionably late", as it were. As well,
with Microsoft depositing code into the linux kernel, the next step is
to get the linux distributors to pay them $15 per copy sold - meaning
that "free as in beer" linux could be a thing of the past - shortly.
(Um, "Android Lessons" anyone?)
