c# is getting more and more accepted in the game programming community

A couple of days a go this post at gamedev.net started and did not end in a flame war, but a very long discussion about c++, c# and other languages.

Anyways, nice to see the common misconception that c# is slow is fading away and in maybe 10 or 20 years more than a handful of guys will use it (or maybe it takes longer than 20 years, heck, some people still code in c ... tip: don't look at the quake3 source ^^).
