Some gratuitous MSVC bashing

Recently I found out Microsoft’s Visual Studio doesn’t support alternative tokens (ie “and” instead of “&&”). Even worse than that, apparently they don’t think it’s even necessary. And by the looks of this thread, the people working on MSVC need to take some time to actually READ the cpp standard. You know… it’s kind of like a spec for your product. It’s always good to take some time to understand the specs for your product…

I can only imagine how incredibly ugly their lexer must be to say it’s not a fixable problem.
