Seriously, Joel on Software's got some interesting comments on specifications, which a standard is for the entire industry. Eg, if a standard is too long, people won't bother with it, which puts ECMA 376 in its place.

I guess, Micorsoft facing many criticisms and it's having very hard time and they need to accomplish the needs of people and rectify the issue that customers are having.

This sounds so much like IE being part of the OS and are quite inseparable.
