    No, you just don't want Microsoft to kick your ass again and again so you want to do anything you can in order to stop a tidle wave.
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2

    I also want COBOL, BASIC, B, ASM, HTML, php, ObjectPAL, Cyrano, Objective C, and Dynamic C.

    I can see why a C# board is wanted - it even makes sense. but there's no reason for a .NET board. We shoudn't keep adding new boards just because there's a couple members that program in it. If you want that, go to programmersheaven.

    Say what you want, but in my opinion C# is going to be famous. The ease of use of Java with the flexibility of C++. I can't wait until C# is going to be available under Linux. Then all of you will be able to relax, and have a forum about using C# under Linux.

    By the way I did a small experiment:

    1) "hello world!" in C compiled under MS Visual C++ 6 to 40K+.

    2) "hello world!" in C# under the beta MS compiler is under 4K.

    I think I am going to like C# very much!

    You only get 40k+ executables if you compile it statically.
    C# doesn't compile to an exe does it?

    C# does compile to an exe. I didn't try moving it to a diff. machine (without .NET SDK installed) to see if it will scream for any missing libraries.

    I thought it compiled to an intermediate langauge. I'll have to check later. I have VS.NET afterall.

    Cool

    The only problem here is there are still ppl who don't understand or underestimate the potential of linux. Sure Microsoft Windows has a cute interface and crashes ten times a day but you can play all those nice games on it with directx ( which is also microsoft ). But that's not the point. C# is still microsoft -- and right now M$ is getting a little shaken because of
    the penguin invasion.

    It won't run without .NET Framework installed.

    Fact is you need some deeper knowledge to install and use
    Linux. Have you ever thought about obtaining the same amount of knowledge for windows ? If you don't configure it properly, or don't use the latest Version ( NT4 or 2K or XP ) you cannot compare the two. But you do. I bet you had a manual for your Linux installation. Have you ever considered reading a Windows manual ? If your system crashes 10 times a day, please go and get some knowledge how to handle a windows system. Win2K didn't crash on me once on four different machines for as long as I have it installed. And I got it when it came out. I am playing games ( UO and CS mostly ) and do office and coding stuff with it. No Linux system could probably perform better, because I don't have complaints.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Actually, installation wise, Mandrake 8 is easier/quicker to install than is windows 2000. It's after the installation that things get hairy, putting new software onto a linux machine is often times very esoteric (Some stuff comes on CD and is as easy as running a software installer program, searching for the program name, and installing the correct modules, the program itself checking for and installing dependencies), but when you have to hunt for stuff on rpm, or worse, compile it from source, it's really painful.

    It's not hard to get Linux working with a nice distro anymore, it's just hard to get it to do anything.
