I think you are a bunch of damned traitors. .NET is a good idea in the sense of creating a common backbone virtual machine that allows plugging in components. It is very, very bad if that backbone is not fully Open Source. It is worse if it is in the hands of Microsoft. Microsoft never has been and is not interested in enabling software generally. O'Reilly should know this. I can only see this as a selling out. It looks like O'Reilly cares more for profits than for standing up for what is best for the world of computing.
