Microsoft In a Q&A, Neelie Kroes, who fined MS for not complying with the EC's antitrust ruling, said: "I regret that the Commission has had to take such a step today, but given Microsoft's continued non-compliance to date, I have been left with no alternative. Today's decision reflects my determination to ensure that Microsoft complies with its obligations.Microsoft has claimed that its obligations in the decision are not clear, or that the obligations have changed. I cannot accept this characterisation - Microsoft's obligations are clearly outlined in the 2004 decision and have remained constant since then."

I was sloppy with my language. What I meant to say was that internal interfaces are subject to change at any time, and cannot be relied upon by external code. That you're even arguing about this indicates that you are indeed demanding that internal functions be documented for public use, which goes against the very fundamentals of computer programming.
