I am also surprised. I was completely jazzed by what I saw and have played with since returning via the NGWSSDK and VS.NET.

When COM came along it solved some problems (allowing application and component services to be used across languages and process boundaries). However, it made the developer's job harder.

I look at the .NET Frameworks, the CLR and C# and I can see my job getting much easier with respect to writing reusable code. I will be able to focus more time on my value added and less time on boiler plate code, referencing counting, managing memory and deciphering the Win32 API.

I think this is a lot of the appeal of Java - simpler programming paradigm - and less so the portability story. However, I don't think everyone is going to buy into developing in just one language.

And hey, if squeezing every last bit of performance is your bag you can write native C++ applications that compile down to x86 instructions. MS has taken anything away from any developer. We just have some more options now for Windows development.
