Is this one of the reason why Mr. Bill Gates claim they have
"CROSS-PLATFORM STRATEGY" every so often? MS need to CROSS their own
{Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows NT 3.5, Windows NT 4.0} PLATFORMS.

The story is: If you do not know how to support more than one platform,
create MORE platforms that you know how to support!!!! And then you can
claim you a have a CROSS-PLATFORMs story.... What a joy to work on a
company like that.
