Well, back in the late 90's when I was working on my Ph.D. I wrote some insanely complicated neural systems simulations/models. It was a lot of fun, needless to say. But, in retrospect, I sure wish I had C# and managed code. My only concern would be
processing time. My simulations took days to complete. I wonder how they would compare to managed code, all things being equal of course.
Sorry for the retrospective answer, but it is the best I can do at this time.

I'm just trying to get a feel for how the .NET Framework is being used in the scientific world.
Beyond the increase in your productivity (concentration on algorithms, not memory management implementations), what other pleasant surprises have you encountered when writing managed applications in a research or academic context? What problems have you encountered?
