Not if you use Japple!  Japple lowers the bar to Enterprise Application
Development.  It is easy to use, it is LGPL'd, and runs on a variety of
hardware and software.

I've been thinking a lot about Japple and .NET lately...nothing we do in
Japple precludes a .NET implementation.  Everything in Japple
is standards-based; SQL, HTML, CSS, DOM, XML, etc.  I'd love to get
feedback from some folks as to the feasibility of porting Japple to .NET.
On the Java side there is the Servlet API and many Servlet containers like
Tomcat.   What is the analog to .NET?

But he will be thinking about all that money he saved by implementing his
solutions faster and without needing a unix guru.  We have to make
building apps with open-source easier, faster and more robust.  This is
what Japple does.
