.NET is heavily based on Java technology; but .NET is created by a company that has a very large story of monopoly, domination and elimination of other technologies/architectures.

The work done by Miguel de Icaza and his team is amazing, but, it's obvious that so great brains could create some amazing architecture from the scratch and open source only (Parrot, Python, maybe some next step to the Java -> .NET -> x evolution), I don't know.

I do not want to throw away the Microsoft technology, but I think the open source community should create their own stuff (intellectuality is not missing) instead of tryin' to use a proprietary one.
