Re: [vox] .NET or Java?

I agree with Mark that it would be nice to hear about .NET; in fact, I'd
love to have a talk about Mono as well, and a comparison and contrast.

As I understand it, you don't *have* to code in C#--you can code .NET apps
using C++. As far as the GUI side goes, you get things like WinForms to
make developing windows apps easier, but the C++ interface, I've been
told, is a little cumbersome to use.
