I agree that Microsoft has done a good job with OpenType MATH, but they did not
invent the wheel. One could say that they have just transformed TeX' math engine 

into an OpenType table. Naturally, they have added features some people were
expecting to be added in TeX. And finally, they sell all these for379,01€!
