Sometimes I feel that the biggest hurdle to getting MS to invest in C# at the systems level is the Windows Division and its existing C/C++ devs...
MS have a huge pool of C/C++ devs to write drivers/kernel/user code why bother when they've done a great job for the last 20+ years ..
And yes I know of the advantages a type safety etc. affords..
I wished they would let us C# devs down there, but what would it take to convince them to do that.. Because apparently to date Joe Duffy and team appear to have not convinced them,
Unless .. Joe and team did convince them and are doing that right now ;) ??! :)
