FWIW, I see .NET catching on practically *everywhere*, and it doesn't
seem like it's because it's hyped like Java was. It seems like
developers and managers alike are genuinely happy with it. It seems
like Microsoft finally got something right (first time - took them
over twenty years). Personally, I'm happy with C++ and Python, but the
.NET framework is a good piece of work. C++ is woefully lacking in
support for threading, networking, web services, etc. Python is great
but not fast enough.

It was inevitable that Redmond would eventually do something good.
Their support for Web Services is hard to beat, and that's the way of
things these days.

Best regards,
