Microsoft didn't support inttypes and stdint because those are C99 features.
Nope. They are listed in addenum D in the list of 25 headers provided by C++11 for compatibility with C. And Microsoft talks big about his dedication to C++11.
Once you start patch working in only part of the standard things get murky.
Indeed. Does not mean you should drag your feet and include only features which don't help portability. Note that
stdint.h is finally in Visual Studio 2010 as I've pointed out above. Now you can declare 8bit or 64bit int in portable way but you can not print it with printf. Greeat achievement. Not.
