Google "Google has revealed that it has no plans to develop dedicated apps for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 for its business app products such as Gmail or Drive." Product management director for Google Apps, Clay Bavor, told V3 that Google "will go where the users are but they are not on Windows Phone or Windows 8". Ouch - but for now, hard to argue with.

Apple isn't much better. They also don't like open standards, and use them only when they have no control over the situation. Look at their opposition to open video codecs and you'll see it clearly.

But not every corporation is so low on business ethics, as to use crooked standards for lock in. Many are decent and favor interoperability and open standards.

Aiming for profit and being ethical are not contradicting interests. Contrary to what MS or Apple try to convince everyone around.
