C#/.Net has some things that are definitely worth considering:

#1) Can easily use C++/C#/J#/C libraries without having to do odd
     imports.  I.e. it is language neutral without the overhead of
     CORBA

#2) The attributes/delegates functionality of C# is very powerful.
     The Avalon team has been looking into mimicking that functionality
     in Java.  We have support for Delegates (of a fashion), but the
     attributes are more difficult.  BTW, Attribtutes are the key to
     successful and predictable AOP (Aspect Oriented Programming).


Can Cocoon work with Windows/Solaris/AIX/AS400/Linux/put your JVM here?
Yes!  And that is its biggest strength.  However, there are other things
that we might want to do where Java limits us.
