General Development "IronPython is about bringing together two worlds. The key value in IronPython is that it is both a true implementation of Python and is seamlessly integrated with the .NET platform. Most features were easy and natural choices where the language and the platform fit together with almost no work. However, there were challenges from the obvious cases like exception type hierarchies to the somewhat esoteric challenges concerning different methods on strings." More here.

I think it's pretty cool that they managed to do this.
Let's hope the jython team can keep up with this.

Even if you're developing in java or C#, it's pretty useful to be able to bring up a python prompt and try things out without the need to create classes and compiling stuff.
