>From "Contracts and Interoperability - A Conversation with Anders
Hejlsberg, Part V" [1]:

  "Anders Hejlsberg, a distinguished engineer at Microsoft,
   led the team that designed the C# (pronounced C Sharp)
   programming language... In 1996, after 13 years with
   Borland, Hejlsberg joined Microsoft, where he initially
   worked as an architect of Visual J++..."

I'm no big fan of Sun or Java, but that's quite some industry
leadership you're showing us, Brandon. ;-)
