What do you think about this language? It is relativley fast, portable (at least once .NET goes elsewhere ( )), and has some novel ideas built in. It also adds some features missing to Java, such as direct memory access via "unsafe" code. It works well with Windows (of course), along with the Internet in a way similar to Java's. In my opinion, it takes some of the best ideas in Java and C++, and mixes them into a language that continues the C line (I still like C++ the best for its raw power, however ). So what do you guys think about it? Does it have some good ideas behind it? Do you think it'll last? I look forward to your opinions !
