In a way yes, at least until a 2.x branch of data turns from ideas and
brainstorming to reality;-)
One thing to clarify IMHO a bit more important on Windows machines, since
they are known to be more "appealing" for hacking or malware, etc. than a
(well-protected) UX or similar OS. If I look at the projects, there's
DeviceMap and DeviceMapConsole. Does it mean, you already separated the
"Client" from a console app?

If so, then indeed, the 2 .NET clients seemed even a bit ahead of the Java
Classifier, since we spoke about a slight discomfort to some environments
if an executable or scriptable part is directly inside the client module.

One evident lack is documentation (even on the Java side to some extent,
though presentations help)
If I free enough space on my own laptop before Rome, I'd love to give a
quick live demo of either the C# or VB.NET one, too. I appreciate if you
could help with tips, etc.
A vital help could be a how-to on using only command line tools or freely
available compilers (indeed MS Open Sourced quite a bit now, too)
Since it is also generally free, using Visual Studio Community sounds fair,
but since the Java equivalent runs on any Maven enabled box, something
similar for a "headless" build on the .NET side being documented and
understandable could help. Last but not least if we wanted to use one of
the Apache CI servers for .NET we heard exist;-)
