Works pretty damn well for that.

Not by the time financial transaction software developers like Fidelity Information Services get a hold of it. How is running a daemon compiled together with it's monitor in a GUI-based .COM object even remotely "working pretty damn well"? Don't get me wrong, I've heard all the fairy tale applications for .NET, and sure it could have some uses.. But any .NET app I've ever seen has been a nightmare. Had to build server images with very specific versions of every single OS patch and interpretor, otherwise the thing went tits up... This is not what .NET was "supposed" to be about, but in the end it was utter crap.

Don't even get me started on MS Biztalk.... ::cringe::
