That's good news. I had a long talk with Jean Paoli at 
XML2001 arguing that .NET had a chance of catching on to
the extent that it didn't equate to Windows lock-in... I'm
not sure I convinced him.

OK, so if you buy the premise that C# and CLR don't lock you
in, how far into .NET can you go before you're hooked?
