What does ms in mscorlib.dll stands for ?

P: n/a
Hi:

I was just wondering what does 'ms' in mscorlib.dll stands for ?. It
shouldn't be 'microsoft' else it defies the purpose of platform
interoperability. Mono guys call their main assembly - 'corlib.dll'.
I do not know if Mono is giving their assembly the wrong name or 'ms' is
microsoft ?

Please clear my doubts and confusion on this.

regards & thanks

it is indeed microsoft. ms never promised platform interop, the mono guys took it upon themselves, and they are actually going to name it mscorlib as well (from what i've read).
