in thread Perl is dying
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.)
Makeshifts last the longest.
