First, I'd like to say that the translation was 
good!! I always use English to Spanish translation
because the portuguese isn't very complete, but I
could see that in this case it was good!

I liked very much the article!

I keep talking with a friend that loves Java about the
Standardization of C# and CLI. But he keeps saying
that this is a MS play. I don't think so!! And I talk
about the process Sun take with Java and the IBM
answer. There is also the incident with Jakarta people
where Sun changed some JCP aspects.

I like the fact that C# and CLI was sent to a
stardardization body. Because this allows what people
are doing with Mono and Pnet. And I'm not even talking
about other efforts like SharpDevelop, NAnt, NUnit,
Npgsql :) and other projects that are being built on
top of these technologies. This is very good. And I
think that it can go even farther.

I want to say that I *do* like Java. I like it very
much and I think that it changed the history of
computer programming.
But I think also that C# is better, to me, and I want
it to be even better.

I don't know if I should ask this, but I didn't see
anything about that anywhere.

Java has Sun for stardards like Servlets, EJB,
Transaction Processing and others. But I still didn't
find standards like that for .Net, for example,
transaction processing. I know there is COM+ and MTS,
but what about Mono on Unix? 

Sorry if I'm talking too many nonsense things. Please
let me know if I'm saying something wrong.
