Linux Linux is struggling on the desktop because it only has a small number of "great" apps, according to the Gnome co-creator. Miguel de Icaza, co-creator of the Gnome desktop, told tech journalist Tim Anderson at the recent Windows 8 Build conference "When you count how many great desktop apps there are on Linux, you can probably name 10," de Icaza said, according to a post on Anderson's IT Writing blog. "You work really hard, you can probably name 20. We've managed to p*** off developers every step of the way, breaking APIs all the time."

The Microsoft Community Promise certainly doesn't exist for Systems.Windows.Forms. I beleive also that it doesn't exist for .NET XML.

It definitely does not exist for neither GTK nor QT so you better not write any apps using these libs either.

Also no "promise" for linux itself, so you better stop using that as well (or Microsoft will get its Microsoft tax)
