This is a very interesting comment and it would be a shame if so few people get to see it. Maybe it
could be developed into an LWN article.
Instead of picking any one favorite language, why not make the environment language-
independent? This is the point of Mono, is it not? The mono runtime can support more than C#. I
believe there is already a Python-Mono bridge (there is definitely Python for .NET). Does anyone
remember CORBA? I know, stop laughing! GNOME was originally conceived as a language-neutral,
network-transparent "object environment". Why can't it be that again, with Mono?
