Joel Spolsky has a tremendous piece on why webstandards have failed to standardize the web, why making IE8 fully compliant will make it both perfect and useless, and how web developers are pretty much doomed to continue making web pages that must be tested against an army of browsers to ensure even the most basic, low-level, half-assed sort of compatibility. He also talks about why fixing Windows Vista involved breaking so many old applications.
