Uhm, if you want to standardize fully on "Industry standard", use Windows and .NET..


Well no - the CIL and CLR are an industry standard - that is not what Microsoft supplies per se. You can use the CLR without the full Microsoft platform. But that is another discussion.

Those who works on alternate OS are not satisfied with current "industry standards" so this is a poor argument.


Ah, cool. So they don't need to write any C or C++ in their OS then - because they are industry Standards... and so is Assembler... hmmm..

Boolean algebra would beg to differ.

Anyway, you're welcome to port .Net to Syllable. In fact, I ported part of GNU Portable .Net in the very early years of Syllable. But we found something better.

Well, there are some OSs which are written in languages other than C or C++, don't you know?
