> The nice thing about Java is you can easily forbid calling native code.
C# can do this as well. The thing is, sometimes you actually need the functionality present in the native libraries. F-Spot uses libpng to show PNG images, and libjpeg to show JPEGs. As well, Mono uses Gecko and .NET uses IE to supply the Internet Explorer Web control from .NET, which has obvious implications; if you want to write a Web browser, are you going to be forced to write it all in C#, including render engine?
