Except that by and large they don't - in fact, the complaint is often quite
the reverse ("Why don't MS fix/improve this API in Windows 8?" - answer:
because it has to continue to work the same in all Windows to avoid breaking

Which in turn create their own problems - either shortcomings in the

Or how about this for a crazy idea... how about getting everyone to sing
from the same stylesheet and FIXing the inconsistencies once and for all ...

Just a thought.
