The language is cross-platform. .NET may not be, but the language itself is.
And it's not "ripping off C++". C++ is a giant, mangled, brain-dead version of C. It's intended for a different area. C# is more "ripping off" Java, if it's ripping off anything. And ripping off Java is fine.
The only reason people like C# is because Microsoft is good at marketing.

That's retardiculous. The reason people like C# is that they've used it and it's good.

Yep.  C# is nice, just not developer friendly when it comes to cross-platform development. Damn Microsoft! Greedy bastards!

Microsoft seems to have lost their roots, a lot.  Windows 98 was incredible for the time.  2000 wasn't as stable, but a much better OS.  There are even some interface things XP should have had (audio preview in explorer, etc).  Vista was feature-bloated and unstable.  Windows 7 is great, but still quite bloated.

I'd like to openly commend Rusky for not joining in on you boys' little antiMS jackoffathon
If C# is just a rip of Java, it is at least an attempt to be a modernized rip
& let's keep it straight on the C#/.NET dichotomy

I realize. It's still a rip, and the attempt was failed.

You're both pathetic. C# as a language is far better than Java. You're just blind because MICRO$0FT IS TEH SUX0RZ DURRRRRR

No, you're blind to our thoughts because you think we're blind because you think we think Microsoft sucks. ;)

Duh! You haven't even given any thoughts! If you want to give some I might be able to see them. I've actually used C#. Have you? I've actually used Java as well. How about you? Both? Somehow I doubt it after this conversation.

I've used C# and I can vouch for both its flexibility and ease of use. However narrow minded thoughts like yours are just giving C# and .NET a bad name .NET has been the brainchild of many developers spreading across several companies (Intel and Sun being two) Microsoft's take on .NET is it's own and Sun is actually working on creating it's own version.

Also C# was not and is not and M$ only thing both Sun and Intel have had a say in it's creation although M$ did most of it's development.
