comment What is the functional-programming alternative to an interface?
Fair enough; my real problem isn't particularly interesting. I've already got things working just fine in C# (github.com/JDanielSmith/Projects/tree/master/PictureOfTheDay if you really want to look at the code), but it would be fun to do in in a more functional style while still using C#.

@Bobby: that's what I'm thinking. Mono+Silverlight seems most of the way there. Add to that some P/Invoke and/or C++/CLI for less mainstream stuff (Cryptography, AD, etc.) and I think you'd have a pretty reasonable solution at reasonable cost. My argument is that Microsoft DOES want to spend money helping people get on OSX; if they don't, people will stop using C#/.NET on Windows.

@Will: what about all those developers (like me) who think .NET/C# is the best development platform around? We're having to give this up because the only way to be sure we aren't locked out of the Mac is to write a whole lot more C++. It's a throw-back to ~10 years ago before C#/.NET--a giant step backwards.

@David: and hence the problem behind this question: more C++, (much) less C#. I (really) like C#!
