I'm going to ignore the theological discussion that's joined this thread.

To answer your question Niels, it's already been done:


I know at least one person who is trying to use this to run .Net on OS X.


> 1) "Do NET in Java" - The NET classes is very similar to the Java 
> classes. We have access to the source code of the Java 
> classes. Why not 
> implement the NET classes using java, and it might in some

> a question of wrapping the NET classes around a Java class.
> 2) "Run it on Java VMs" - Now you have the NET in java, and 
> you can run 
> it on all Java vms, on Solaris, Linux, Palm, Mac OS X, Mac OS 
> Classic, 
> Nokia phones....., and on Intel, sparc, ppc, ......
> Now you can do your programming i C# and make the do NET on Win on 
> Intel, then just recompile, and run it on every other OS and 
> processor 
> that has a Java VM!!
> This must be the easier and most powerful way to go!
