But you also have to consider the price MS has paid for that never-
ending compatibility. I think most FOSS makers have attempted to make
things as stable as possible without hobbling future progress, and IMO
thats the right way to go.

They're writing software for the future, and when things like menu specs
finally settle down, it will really be stable, there will be no need for
GNOME Second-thought Edition 2006.
