Even if they are only 5% (which I doubt).

Although Microsoft does have a huge majority, I have evidence that it is
much lower than 95%.  And I suspect that in the Ada community, M$ has a
lower percentage than the world in general.

Furthermore, it seems to me a little odd to advertise Ada's inter-platform
portability while at the same time supporting M$ attempt to acheive
"portability" by making us all one big happy family with Bill as Big
Brother.

(Warning: hyperbole above--criticize the position, don't flame the
clumsy sarcasm.)
