Abstain Microsoft appreciates the work of the Select Committee and believes the process and conclusion were fair and reasonable. We are abstaining only because we would like our developers to have more time to study how MCT can be implemented into our code base. We would not want to appear disingenuous by voting in favor of MCT now if, down the road, we determine that we are not able to support MCT due to some implementation complications that are not apparent today.
