    From DouglasH's link of Eric Meijer's Xtech 2007 paper:

    On both the client and the server, we do not assume the existence of a native .NET runtime. Instead we will target any available existing runtime.

    Umm, wow!  Is this Nikhil Kothari's Script# he's talking about, or is Eric talking about something deeper than that?

    JavaScript, this generation's assembly language... Steve Yegge of Google ported Rails to JavaScript via Rhino.

    It is from that group where Linq to xsd is coming from also.
