I share a quote from Stroustrup:

"C has its problems, but a language designed from scratch would have some too, and we know C's problems."

This is why it's better to start with the CLI (stop calling it .NET! .NET is a marketing term. CLI is the system DG supports), find its weak spots, and patch them, than to design something from scratch.

I'm not sure if I'd say it is "better". Was Windows was better because it was built on top of MSDos. It may be "better" from the view that it's easier and less risky than coming up with something unique.
