    lol, but he didn't actually say whether or not it was an after the fact thing he noticed or was brought attention to.  Other than that he was just noting a few enterprise/industrial strength selling points about what Iron meant to him personally for the presentation.

     

    I still believe that Iron is a way to prefix a dynamicly typed language on a strongly typed runtime. Wink

    I think the closest you'll ever get to a real answer was the hint at Iron Chef, there doesn’t always have to be a good reason for a name and once a precedent is started... Smiley
