I donno, the Chinese seem to be willing to actually punish corporate executive and government official types from time to time.

I suspect there's very little overlap between those punished and those who are guilty.

When I say guilty I'm referring to the coruption etc. that they're charged with. Clearly they're guilty of being a threat to someone in power, or not paying the right bribes.

Cross platform? They haven't even solved cross version.
People used to give me Word 2007 docs to correct. I had Word 2003. After two attempts I started asking for a hard copy that I'd scrawl on with a pen. They thought I was mad until I showed them; If I tried to do it on the 'puter the editing used to happen in a random location. I say random, the one place it didn't happen was where the cursor was.
