[thelist] Java.NET - good thing? bad thing?

What would be REALLY great is ANY Language on any OS ---> but unfortunately
not even SUN can do that.

I prefer not having to limit my choice of programmers to one language (i.e.
JAVA). Now pretty much any programmer can use the .NET framework (including
JAVA developers) and program in the language of their choice. Heck even
COBOL programmers can now even program in .NET. (hehe. . .that's nice of
Microsoft to give them work again!)

If SUN wasn't so arrogant about JAVA they could have wiped Microsoft off of
the planet.

Unfortunately, SUN will be a victim of it's own ignorance.
