You nailed it, Michael! I have only seen a couple of "real" applications come out of Redmond that are .NET. The first one that comes to mind is Office Accounting. Most things from them are C++.


ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC and LinqToSQL/Entity Framework are 100% C# and there are lots of "real" applications being developed with those tools.
