Why should either back end add limitations?

It have heard it said that .NET is a comspiracy between Intel and M$ to kill
java and sell powerful chips in the future as necessary to support it. If
there is even a hint of truth to this I would suggest that fpc leaves it
entirely alone!

Surely there will be an M$dros API to the .NET stuff that will be callable
like any other unit? Isn't that enough if you really have to use it?

If the big attraction is to have it working on a MAC, then surely it makes
more sense to port fpc to a MAC?
