Why don't you say that Office 2003 is more powerful than Office 97?

We are discussing C++ and other object-oriented encapsulation for kernel
module here.
If you want to complain that your Office 2003 is slower than Office 97,
please leave your grouse for Microsoft technical support staff.

You even haven't known what we are discussing and what I would commit.
Actually my patches has little relationship to C++.

Read previous mails first before your great speech here!
