Re: php + .net = greatness
Unfortunatly java did it first, and better. Java's libraries actually make sense and don't look like they have been organized by a group of retarded monkies. :\, Anything .NET can do java can reproduce faster, and more efficiently. You still cannot find a truely cross-platform JIT for .NET, whether you think mono works or not.
I'd like to see a file pointer to an alternate data stream be created natively and used as though it were a normal file object in java. not trying to knock it, I started out doing java and still like the language. IMO without the abstraction layer of the virtual machine .net is going to perform better on a windows machine than a java app because it worked directly with the os. I do understand that the sdk for a windows and unix os implement the framework differently to take advantage of the specific machine, but I've yet to see that level of support in java
