In the last few years I have written maybe five times as much c# code
from scratch as I have Perl - the majority of it for application
integration purposes and such-like and the availability of good out of
the box XML web-services support and tight integration to windows
services makes it a no-brainer for me on Windows, not that I haven't had
recourse to CPAN to do stuff that I couldn't be arsed to write
myself :-)
