Comment Re:Not Bill Gates' Microsoft (Score 1) 339

Great, maybe they can attempt to implement C99 now 12 years later. I am still required to cripple my C code so it will be accepted by Microsoft's crappy compiler, years after everyone else has moved on. Respecting standards in one place doesn't mean they actually respect standards.

They sell a C++ compiler why should they care about C? C is officially legacy for Microsoft.

There is no law that forces C++ compilers to support plain C. It made sense when the language did not had a big user base.

Plus there are plenty of C compiler vendors for Windows that would happily sell you a compiler.
