Are you asking us or is this a part of the quote? Anyways, I think .net 
will be crushed unther it's own weight: it's mad to think Mircrosoft or 
any other firm could build it. A 'general VM that abstracts any hardware 
' is something out a satiric movie about an insane scientist. Will die 
same death as Java: burried in it's little nich where it has some sort 
of usefullness. And forgotten once it's no longer a buzz word.

Hmm.. maybe I'm having a scinical mood orso ;-)
