What's your experience been? How difficult of a transition to WinForms,
etc. from Java?
I was initially considering .Net and C# but cost was an issue. Then I
recently ran across #Develop (http://www.icsharpcode.net/OpenSource/SD/)
which looks like it might provide a full featured development environ. at
the right price :).
My concern is the cost from a learning standpoint. It's a small team that
consists of fairly knowledgeable Java folks. I could probably stomach a
month ramp up on .Net and C# but much beyond that and we're toast.
Thanks for your input.
