I'd love to get a copy of that flyer.  Can you help?

I contacted Microsoft a couple of years ago about certifying their compilers
and was pretty much snubbed.  The people I talked to indicated that they
were interested in providing what their customers wanted RATHER THAN
conformance to standards.  (Opinion: Microsoft wants to define STANDARD as
OUR WAY. End Opinion)

Subject: Leveraging MicroSoft's Marketing

I recently received a long (7 pages) flyer from MicroSoft expounding upon
the virtues of certifying software.  In their case it is Windows
2000.  It seems to me that there is an opportunity here for the Ada
community to jump onto the certified software band-wagon along
with MicroSoft and raise the awareness of the user community that some tools
are certified and have been for a long time.
