U is for Uniplatform.

(As in only one platform.)

Seriously, MS is great at giving the world lots of things that don't meed developer needs or that we don't want. (C#, Silverlight, .NET to name a few.) I'm STILL waiting for a proper MS standards-adhering C++ compiler, thanks.

It's a shame that they also happen to give us the few basic necessities that a lot of people do need. (Windows and Office, mostly.) So they're never really going to learn the lesson that they should actually listen to their customers. Oh well.

What I don't get is what is so hard about porting 100 lines of code to various languages/app stores that companies drop their support of X, Y, or Z? Because interns are so hard to find?
