Microsoft did the unexpected with .NET, the framework
(it's API) is just as nice

The GUI stuff in mono is still scratchy I hear, but
the general stuff (ie: you
want to write a server or a daemon or something) is top notch.
Which sort of GUI stuff? WinForms or GTK#?
is also VERY nice from a web development POV,
and mono does a reasonable
job of getting it running on linux.
Hmm. I think I'll stick to PHP and Java thanks.
Anyway, give mono a spin (or if you're on windows,
get the .net framework sdk)
and you'll probably find you agree with me that it's quite cool.
Maybe when I have an iota of time. What will probably push me in that
direction is when/if I ever want to write a GTK+/GNOME app for Linux.
So far I've avoided that little den of wolves.
