    Actually nothing could be farther from the truth, if you really think
    this you don't understand anything about C++! Just because the SYNTAX
    is SIMILAR does not make the IMPLEMENTATION simlar!

    well guess that qualifies why you have the above misconception!

    Actually this is completely wrong also, C# works much like VB
    "objects" are COM objects. Nothing fancy at the langauge level there.
    ..Net Framework is Windows specific runtime environment that is very
    similar to the Java standard libraries, nothing more nothing less.

    again with the misconseptions, not a compiler but a runtime
    interpreter.
