Another reason to go the .NET way

Mainsoft, once famous (to me) for their Visual Source Safe for UNIX and lately for supposedly leaking some Windows source code to the Internet, has achieved an incredible breakthrough... It is not April yet, or is it? Visual MainWin for J2EE, the company's new product, compiles MSIL to Java bytecode, allowing for .NET applications to run in almost any J2EE server. It also provides for very easy ways for referencing EJBs from any Visual Studio .NET language.

For those Microsofters that aren’t still sure Mainsoft is Microsoft's buddy, let me tell you there are many people out there that are convinced of the "Microsoft's OS just doesn't scale" thing. The sole existence of Mainsoft's Visual MainWin for J2EE means for those people that they can now feel better investing in .NET and even Windows.
