There's always one comment in your posts that throws me for a complete loop.
I fully agree that learning another language can only benefit ones existing
and new RPG development, but to say that is an advantage is just an odd way
to create an advantage for the Microsoft approach. I don't know, maybe I am
just grumpy today.

I am not selling anything Aaron, MSFT or otherwise. In my experience,
C# and .NET are the best programming language and framework that I
know of. Since Windows PCs are so common in i5/OS shops, it makes a
lot of sense to me that C# should be an equal language to RPG for i5
programmers. It costs nothing to write and run .NET desktop apps that
access the central i5. As far as people worrying about be locked into
Windows and all that, there is arguably more risk in using the latest
fave of IBM ( VisualRPG anyone? )
