Re: Why .NET?

From my position I can only say that using C# with Visual Studio is the most straight forward aproach instad of using VC++ with MFC / COM or something like that. MS had VB for RAD and VC++ for the hard stuff. Now with .NET you get (nearly) both in one comfortable package. And you boss will also be happy if you can produce your apps in much less time with the average developers available on the market.
And the nice thing is --> with every step Monodevelop and the MONO project is getting better using a CLR based language gives much more flexibility.
