The funny thing about all this is that microsoft could have been years ahead of google in doing a c# to javascript framework (i think it was voltra or volta). but like most things Microsoft does this days they dropped the ball.

The guy that is the PM for Dart is Brad Abram (aka MR. .net, to me at least), why do great people keep leaving Microsoft, and implementing the ideas else where. Maybe its to many business guys in charge, i don't know, just my option.

Google at least gets it that Javascript is not ready and will never be ready to make large apps, something Microsoft at point does not get... "Windows 8 Htm5+Jscript".

Maybe a little competition will help Microsoft, like iphone did to Microsoft to produce WP7.
