APIW INTERFACE TO BE ISO STANDARD DESPITE MICROSOFT OBJECTIONS

By CBR Staff Writer

Despite Microsoft Corp’s objections the APIW ersatz Windows application programming interface concocted by its enemies, has now been published and set on the fast track of the International Standards Organization to become exactly that – an international standard. ISO acceptance, unless Microsoft can unseat it at the country level, is expected in about nine months. The European Computer Manufacturers Association, which has already declared APIW a standard itself and controls the ISO fast-track kick-off, anticipates having an extended second edition of APIW or ECMA-234 by December, since what it has now is not the whole Windows.
