Don Box responds to James Gosling .NET Bashing

If you're just catching up, ZDNet Australia published this article quoting James Gosling the creator of the Java language where he says Microsoft's decision to support C and C++ in the common language runtime in .NET is one of the "biggest and most offensive mistakes that they could have made".

Luckily, we have Don Box to post a quick and eloquent reply with the truth.

PS: Did you also notice that Don calls out how Indigo is fully written in C#/.NET (1100+ files of pure managed bliss).
