I admire your efforts to be outside of the .Net box. It's been something every .Net developer should be paying more attention to rather than expecting a free lunch. But while I am a believer in the right tool for the job, comments like .Net stack in the future will only fit a specialized niche outside the mainstream is a swift kick to the pants of the C# community. Please be specific so as not to burden the dedicated workers working on stuff like xbuild, mono, and C# in general. They've gained a lot of ground in the last few years in spite of decisions from the big MS and the general thought that C# can't serve another platform (at least without serious friction). Stack overflow was a big reason why people think that open source and C# can work. And while there is "friction" with mono (maybe different friction than .Net), it's people like yourself who have helped give C# some open source legs by using it in the cases where it really does continue to shine.
