AFAIK VS is not written entirely in .NET. They might use it for UI but for performance the core functionalities are written in C++.

Apparently .NET is a lot more like Java than it is like C++. It is actually compiled on the fly (with the "just in time" compiler). Since the .NET code and the JIT compiler are actually seperate elements, like Java, this seems to scream "port me to irix!"
Does anyone know if this is doable in irix? I realize IRIX is a dying OS and SGI is trying to shake it like a bad case of crabs, but does anyone know if it can be done, and if so, how much effort would it take? If it were possible to run .NET code on IRIX, this would mean that any new software written for Windows XP/Vista should run on IRIX. (Vista is shipping with WinFX which is basically a low-level .NET support layer) I also believe that Visual Studio was written in .NET, which means that if we could get .NET support in IRIX, you could even use Visual Studio to develop code(say what you will about microsoft, but I firmly believe VS 2005 is the BEST IDE out there for coding - once you use intellisense you'll never go back, and oh yea, VS 2005 Express is FREE)
Also, since all SGI MIPS Processors since the R4000 (correct me if im wrong) have been 64 bit, new applications should definetly run on the processor, but how fast they would run is anyones guess.
Does anyone have enough knowledge in this field to give a yay/nay to wheater its even feasible?
Wikipedia entry on MSIL
MSDN Entry describing how .NET code can run on embedded devices with MIPS processors

The earth could not support the current population at western standard of living. Though how we got there from a discussion on .NET, I'm not sure.

Volcanoes and other natural processes release approximately 24 Tg of sulfur to the atmosphere each year. Thus, volcanoes are responsible for 43% of the total natural S flux each year. Man's activities add about 79 Tg sulfur to the atmosphere each year. In an average year, volcanoes release only 13% of the sulfur added to the atmosphere compared to anthropogenic sources. Andres and Kasgnoc (1997) noted that the bulk of the anthropogenic flux is located in the northern hemisphere while volcanic fluxes occur in much more focused belts around the world.

It's been ported to SPARC!
