Well, if you read the thread, you will find that it dates to 12/28/2009 
11:01:38 PM and the answer dates back to 1/5/2010 at 12:28 PM. If you use 
the current boost, it shouldn't be a problem. A year and a half ago it was a 
problem because boost was behaving as designed, while the library in VC 2010 
was not. The current boost is C++11 compatible (even though the standard is 
just a few weeks old) and you can disable the C++11 features that were 
originally provided by boost.

Oh, and for the record, the answer given by the MS person wasn't the best 
one either. That answer would have been to define _HAS_CPP0X to zero in the 
project settings, which disables experimental features in VC2010. The real 
problem with this experimental features, after all, was that at various 
point in time their behavior and implementation was still in flux and 
incomplete, while that of boost was constant over time.

I also find it rather interesting that you move to a personal attack to 
support your point of view...
