.NET (dotGNU too) "Previously, we have presented one of the two opensource licensed projects related to creating a C# kernel. Now it's the time to complete the set by rightfully presenting SharpOS, an effort to build a GPL version 3 + runtime exception licensed system, around a C# kernel of their own design. It is my pleasure and priviledge to host a set of questions and answers from four active developers of SharpOS, that is William Lahti, Bruce Markham, Mircea - Cristian Racasan and Sander van Rossen in order to get some insight into what they are doing with SharpOS, their goals, their different design and inspiration."

safety is the answer. no buffer overflows or easy memory leaks

Well, actually all you do is delegate the safety checks to the developers of the language/compiler/whatever. In the long run all I see emerging from this is something I don't really like, coders who say are experienced and perform horribly when needed to code in c++ and the likes. And disregard c/c++/vc/etc. all you want, it's still mighty important. Don't get this wrong, I personally don't have anything against c# (although winforms is a no-go for me), on my better days I tend even to like it somewhat ;)
