General Development "Looking past the Metro hype, the Build conference also revealed promising road maps for C#, Visual Studio, and the .Net platform as a whole. Perhaps the most exciting demo of the conference for .Net developers, however, was Project Roslyn, a new technology that Microsoft made available yesterday as a Community Technology Preview. Roslyn aims to bring powerful new features to C#, Visual Basic, and Visual Studio, but it's really much more than that. If it succeeds, it will reinvent how we view compilers and compiled languages altogether."

Yeah, seriously. He talks as if .NET runs MSIL directly instead of jitting it. It's not exactly weird other. Other dynamic languages use bytecode. Even the C compiler internally generates assembly or some other type of intermediate language before turning it into machine code. This is a basic concept, a core component of nearly all compiled programming languages (and a lot of interpreted ones as well).
