The .Net VM looks very similar to Java's.  Miguel said the VM's support for various languages is better than Java.  The truth, it seems, is that it's tied to one language, C#.

.Net's VM lacks:
* multiple inheritance of implementation,
* generics,
* dynamic typing,
* double dispatch, and
* method pointers.
