Additionally, you now can run your .Net code (most of it) on Mac and Linux!

I would not want to run .Net code on my computer considering how buggy most of it is, not to mention the fact you can write viruses 10 times more easily using .Net..... oh and I keep my Ubuntu installation clean of Microsoft code, it tends to have a bad effect when running M$ code.

I can code up applications in Java, JavaScript and Flash if I really wanted to use this kind of content, I just see a buggy, fairly un-tested product from M$ and I just see more content that can't fit down my 2Mb/s pipeline as it is just too intensive.

All the cool stuff you can do in Flash, as well as all the productive stuff you can do in WPF and WinForms you can do now in the browser.

I also wouldn't want to run WinForms code and WPF code on my computer without having read reviews and descriptions for the product first, this is one of the most common ways people get viruses. (Running stuff they have no idea what it does and how good it is)
