Sorry I'm slightly drunk right meow but C# shouldn't be a stretch to
learn for anyone with any java experience. It's a pretty
straightforward language that is far superior to any other offering out
there. Real computer scientists should also be able to read a spec and
pick up a language.
NOTE: I'm not endorsing the use of Microshaft's .NET...it's a terrible
framework (look at their collection classes....jesus!) and it typically
builds pretty terrible apps. Java's API + the vibrant open source
community supporting it is *the way* to create a scalable enterprise
(wow buzzwordz) app.
