Open Source development is driven by need. Ignoring the world is politics.
As former core C++ programmer I could have ignored Java, too. Not everything
M$ delivers is bad, it's their business behaviour. Especially .NET will
blast the borders of Windows if Mono is successfull (also driven by need).
To be honest, my first thought reading about the .NET unit was "one could
write a Java compiler for their CLR". Just seemed obviuos.
