Answer to why microsoft left W3C

We had someone come in from Microsoft for a panel discussion and I asked him on “Why microsoft left the W3C?” and guess what his answer was “Microsoft thought that the resources working @ W3C would be better utilised @ other things and the decision was taken due to lack of resources”. “Lack of resources” ? At microsoft? A big BS!! I cant believe that the Worlds biggest Software company with 40$ billion in cash does not have the resources!

  1. Actually, MS doesn’t have the resources to dedicate to a standards board. Afte rall, they’re busy working on the next standards that W3C will just calmly suck-on-down. Why worry about cleaning up the mess of other companies when you’re busily making your own mess. 🙂
