There are lots of people defending MS there because they stuck to the spec,
but when you read the spec you'll see there is no excuse for sticking to it.
2-digit or 4-digit year:
For years between and including 1900 and 1999, the value returned by
getYear is the year minus 1900. For
example, if the year is 1976, the value returned is 76.
For years less than 1900 or greater than 1999, the value returned by
getYear is the four-digit year. For example, if
the year is 1856, the value returned is 1856. If the year is 2026, the
value returned is 2026.
It's laughable that someone actually went and correctly implemented this -
what happens for years between 0 and 99?
