No disagreement. Selling .net is probably like selling carbon fiber
spars to the high-rise construction industry.  Neat idea, no takers.
But if they work out the kinks ...

MS started talking about WinNT about 5 years before NT went 'mainstream'.
(was widely adopted).  I expect a similar timescale for .net

Yes, but ... someone technical should map out the requriements.  For
instance, I beleive .net would require the gnome widgets/objects to
be able to 'introspect', as well as have use-count hooks so that 
garbage collectors could work with them.  Stuff like that.  A 'white
paper' so that when someone says ".net+gnome", you can show them the
white paper and say "this is what we mean".
