(for example even the big company that gave us Internet Explorer 6 realizes that it hurts themselves to not follow html standard in the long run.) I think this is a topic that people need to hear. Why standards are good and why its a bad idea to let one implementation rule them all and be the "standard" that all other implementations should mimic. Imagine if all browsers should follow the IE 6 implementation of html/css. At that time it maybe looked like a good idea to use all the extra features to have your product compete with those who aimed for "lowest common denominator" feature set - but today most people that depends on a browser realize that was a bad idea in the long run. > - good/bad/ugly parts of posix/linux/toolchain from libc pov > > - metrics (benchmarks, size, complexity, amount of libc code > executed in various use-cases, time spent in libc, etc)
