Yeah, I also asked myself why they needed another programming language since
apparently they already raped c++ to make it work with .net :-D
About platform independence, at least they *make it look like* .net will allow
alternative implementations. The msil (read: bytecode ;) ) should be
compatible among runtime environments. Well, I guess that's why they patented
large parts of it...
