Re: about time
Don't forget the ability to cross compile for
(HP/UX is a waste of time IMHO)
Lots of Java runs on those platforms week-in, week-out, year-in,year-out.
Yes, the task of raplacing Java will be an uphill battle but MS really needs to make a viable alternative to Java's compile once, run anywhere mantra and support every platform where Jave has a commercial presence.
But, to be honest, they will probably fail. Ok, I'm not an MS .Net expert but where's the equivalent to WAS/WebLogic etc application servers? Lots and lots of server side java runs in these containers.
