comment Why hasn't C# gained much traction within the opensource community?
I think the difference is that C# is compiled to an intermediate language and gets JIT'ed by the runtime, similar to Java and the JVM, etc. Whereas C / C++ is compiled straight to machine code.

comment Why hasn't C# gained much traction within the opensource community?
@david Maybe I misunderstood my own question? :) People have put forward patents as a reason for C# not being utilised in open source projects. Its a valid concern, but my personal opinion is that its not a specific to C#. I do agree that the association to MS is holding it back too though, but I think thats coming back to the 'corporate' point again.

I really don't agree that Microsoft and its patents are the problem here - fosspatents.blogspot.com/2010/07/…
