Good job Microsoft Dev Div people - You seemed to have ignored Boo enough to mean the developers of it are now heading in the JVM direction!

Whilst I'm all for Boo running on the JVM and .NET, what sucks is that I prefer .NET (BCL and runtime) way more than Java offerings.
The real kicker is that Eclipse integration for Boo means there is now a great IDE for it (sorry but SharpDevelop doesn't cut it).

Boo is a great language. If people want to start playing with it then they will probably go for the nicest experience i.e. Eclipse.
This means they'll be targeting Java. So we will have lost an amazing .NET language to Java!

Sad times. Sad

For goodness sake get someone thinking about bringing Boo into the warm and fuzzy world of Visual Studio. PLEASE!
