Like dbase

In the late 80', Ashton Tate said exactly the same thing "There are millions lines of dbase, programers can't migrate to something else". Then Access was out 1993.
The lesson is that if a new and better product is launched, folks migrate. I thing .net is better. You are not forced to use anonymous delegates, transparent proxies, like in C++ your are not forced to create templates. Very few C++ developpers write templates, they only use the stl.
