If you've used IE or Outlook Express for Solaris, you'd know how untrue
your statement is; their UNIX software is beyond buggy...it's nearly
unusable. They do Windows well, and Mac isn't -too- bad, but everything
coming out of Redmond for UNIX has been horribly broken so far, and
uni-platform (SPARC/Solaris only).

I wouldn't waste my time even thinking about Microsoft developing software
for Linux until they work on fixing all their other problems with UNIX
development.
