Subject Re: .NET Port of LogKit
Date Wed, 20 Feb 2002 09:21:00 GMT

I don't know if I want Microsoft c# <spit> here. I just coded a little bit
c# at the weekend, because know your enemy ;-). It's a shamless
plug of Java and nothing really innovative. They just put their dirty
COM objects in a package structure under hud of their so called
language independet CLR VM. And it's more a marketing trick
to get us Java devs on the MS side. In the API they don't mention
in one word Java, as it would not exist, so C# don't exist for me.


That's my personal view. I would rather like to see a C++ port here ;).

But I'm young and I like to polarize...
