The laughter stemmed from someone moving *from* Java/J2EE to .NET, not in
requesting tools to build .NET applications.

Of course Ant will become the premiere build tool for all environments.  I
use it to build my C/C++ code as well.

But, *you* must admit the same qualities that make Ant so appealing are the
same ones that stem from Java and are inherent with J2EE.  For someone to
recognize that in Ant, but not in Java/J2EE, was... funny.
