in thread Perl is dying

See, that's what I thought wasn't true. That you can write in C# and a small handful of other languages. .Net's just the runtime VM that consumes the bytecode.

    Well, what I said is a common facetious expression of the fact that all the CLR languages are very close to C# in semantics, to the point that the differences are basically just syntactical.

    (Of course, there’s now F#… though I wonder if anyone’s putting it to serious use (if it’s even ready for prime time – I have no idea). The one interesting-looking contender is IronPython – though not interesting to me personally.)
