Actually that's three :)

You know the .NET platform a lot better than I do so if you say so. 
However, that does not seam to be the view of the parrot-guys for
example, go to parrotcode.org and check the FAQ.

Nobody is saying that dynamic languages DOESN'T run under .NET.  Just
that it's not the optimal solution.

I'd love to read an essay about this?

Some interesting links I found.
