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."

So the Microsoft Community Promise dosent exist?

C# Language Specification - Ecma-334, 4th Edition and ISO/IEC 23270:2006



Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) - Ecma-335, 4th Edition and ISO/IEC 23271:2006


The problem is that those specifications only cover up to C# version 2.0 and CLI v 2.0. You are out of luck if you search for a language standard for newer C# versions or CLI.
