.NET (dotGNU too) "Four short years ago, Microsoft unveiled its new framework/engine for programming and running applications in a virtual environment, and the world was stunned. Microsoft had introduced a run-time environment that was for the first time a true 'write once, run everywhere' implementation, but that was far from being the end. With .NET 3.0 on the loom, NeoSmart Technologies takes a look at how far .NET has come and just how long it can keep going."

.NET is great and I currently am doing a project on the framework but to claim that its platform independant is a bit of a joke.

Sure if you use mono on both platforms you might have something that works with Linux and Windows (or at least close to works) but MS in no way offers 'write once run everywhere' unless your definition of multiple platforms is MS only operating systems.

I like .net over java but when it comes to multi-platform I'm sorry but java still wins hands down.
