I mentioned Microsoft. The problem that I have with MS is the continuous update of the C# language. When I was a member of the ANS X3J9 technical committee (Pascal) we were limited to a language update every five years.

Most developers are not in a position to dictate language standards. Nor are they usually listened to by large companies.

The problem is really systemic to the programming community - except we don't have a programming community!
