A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
Yeah, but when "sweet mama Microsoft" is convicted of prostitution in the Court of Public

By the Court of Public Opinion, Microsoft creates the reference standard. It doesn't matter
how close your importer is to the standard, if it screws up an Office document it's your
fault, not Microsoft's. Always.
In the eyes of Joe and Jane Public, Microsoft is already at 100% compliance. :(
