    Port it over to Go and then we'll talk. Changing from Java to C# is like exchanging horse poo for cow poo.

    Troll-Droid to the rescue!

    maybe the re-port back to pure C and low level assembly code would then remove the patent infringements that MS and Oracle are bleating about

    The Phoronix article doesn't mention this.
    This is because Microsoft takes its promises back just as easy as it gives them.
