Yeah, I would have to agree with you there. I hadn't considered that

I would argue the only real "innovation" provided by .NET is just that:
the ability to produce and consume project components from different
I have to say I'd still prefer Java development over .NET, but that's
probably more personal issues with Microsoft than language implementation.
I recently used Python for a relatively large project for a Linux
scripting class (the professor was kind enough to allow any relatively
common scripting language (i.e. available on our Linux server...heh))
and I have to admit, I'm much more productive with Python than with
virtually any language I've used before. (No, I haven't tried Ruby yet,
but I hear it's just as addicting). Access modifiers or not, you can't
really argue with development productivity like that...or the grade that
I got on that project. =) And, it was actually kind of fun listening to
some other students gripe about Perl...haha.
Anyhow, thanks for the additional info, Alan!
