    Why is MS releasing everything on the 12th day of each month? Is 12 their lucky number?

    Office - May 12th
    Visual Studio - April 12
    64GB Zune HD - April 12th
    Microsoft Event - April 12th

    Hmmm...

    Which ones would that be exactly? I can't see any interoperable compatible implementation on MS side at all... not even b/w the Office versions, let alone stuff like Oo_Org :thumbd:
