My perception is that in the area that most overlaps with W3C, Microsoft
have been concentrating on support for .NET "rich" clients, i.e. Common
Language Runtime thick clients.  I assume that is because there is
effective competition in the browser based thin client arena, and they
would rather divert the market into one where they have the monopoly.
My impression is also that they are mainly interested in intranet
applications, because that is, probably, where the development tool
money goes.
