I personally do not like .NET. That possibly comes because I've read
about it in the German Linux Magazin. .NET has a few very good ideas.
OTOH there are points I really dislike.

IMHO the available capacities for programming and development of FPC
should be used to have the compiler for more processors (ia64, ...) and
to implement things like CORBA, Bonobo, C++ binding, ... There seems to
be efford to get DOM working, which should be enhanced for CORBA, ...
