This is the conclusion that I have come to as well. I could be fairly
characterised as an M$ hater. But having tried both Java and C#, it has
to be C# every time.
However, anybody that does "scripting" in either of these two languages
is missing the point (as well as being a potential RSI victim). This is
why I am, very gently, agitating for my favourite scripting language to
have standard backend, preferably .NET/Mono but I could live with JVM.
