Subject: Producing a Win32/UNIX hybrid platform
+
-
 
+
-
We have long had a strict policy of not using internal APIs except for  
+
-
components that ship as part of the platform. This is because the
+
-
internal APIs are subject to frequent change, and separately shipped
+
-
components may encounter compatibility issues if they rely on them ..
+
-
 
+
-
I don't question the value of making it easier to move UNIX applications
+
-
onto Win32. But I don't know how we intend to do that without creating
+
-
an alternative Win32/UNIX hybrid platform that could easly become the
+
-
target for ISVs rather then Win32 alone ...
