.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."

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.


This is simply solved by hireing people with the skills you actually need. If you need a C++ programmer hire someone with C and/or C++ experience. Expecting someone who knows how to 'program' to perform equally well at all programming tasks and in all languages is silly.

If I need someone to write numerical analysis software in C I wouldn't hire someone who's an expert at writing web apps in perl.
