I would also point out that Microsoft (or any large company) has more
vulnerabilities than small companies when releasing software based on
working drafts. Such releases always bring the risk of backwards
incompatibilities, and these are far more likely to bite you (or bring
mounds of negative publicity) when you have thousands or tens of
thousands or zillions of customers than when you have 10 or 50 or 100.
