comment The New Programming Language & BCL for the Cloud
thanks for your input, much appreciated. I believe that the cloud computing will evaluate towards pure application hosting (think of Google Apps), application won't ever know about all the complexities of the platform it runs on, you just create your application in the cloud and won't need to worry about how many memory should be allocated by it, how many processors should perform the job, how many physical machine instances gonna be allocated.. etc.

@Aaronaught, You misunderstood my question. I am just asking for opinions.

@David, for example this programming language by design won't allow to manipulate all the machine's physical memory, only the "virtual" portion of it. It won't be allowed to call external code. If it will be based on C#, it won't have things kept for backward compatibility in it.

@SK-logic, C# with some modifications would fit well, but will Microsoft allow to mess with it? I don't think so.

C# with a limited functionality and minor modifications would fit, but I doubt Microsoft will allow to mess with it. That's why a new language in addition to new BCL is needed.

For example with .NET you can write and read directly from and to any point in memory. This just won't be allowed. There won't be many existing features of C#, .NET. For example there won't be a notion of Disk C, Win32 API etc.
