MS isn't going away any time soon.

But its products certainly are, and sometimes they disappear from one day to the next. Just to refer to different time periods, think of MS BASIC for Macintosh, OS/2, recently even Visual Basic as programmers used to know it. MS is probably one of the worst examples to quote when speaking of assurance of continued availability and support.

Just a pun on "Lua"... sorry, I couldn't resist :-) But if you (or your boss) really believe "the larger the company, the better the support" or that something is more reliable because there's a corporation behind it, you're in for big disillusionments indeed.
