Fine with me. Whoever has a good answer to the question, feel free to email me privately.

Seems to me that this was lacking from the discussion...ie...a quantification of the actual core of the problem. I have a fair amount of experience working around oddities in microsoft's toolsets to make c++ code work in both a gcc/unix world and a VC world, and I can't think of an instance where I couldn't accommodate the oddities by adding some small to moderate abstraction to my design. I never ran into a case where I was stuck with no way out. I never needed to change the compiler or MS headers to accolade my design.  I was always successful at playing some game ON TOP of their compiler and headers to make it all do the expected thing for my code. So, I've been following his entire thread wondering why there is so much argument over the matter and why exactly is changing the compiler in ways that make it awkward even necessary.
