I've seen C# proposed a couple times now on this list as a nice
language that Feecellera tools could be built upon. We need to nip
this idea in the bud.
The primary mission of Freecellera is to free us from commercial,
proprietary tools. Using a Microsoft language does not achieve that
goal. Please do not suggest moving us from one set of proprietary
tools (from the "Big 3" EDA companies) to another (Microsoft) on this
"But Microsoft is moving more and more towards open source and C# is
an open language." Verilog, VHDL, and even Specman E are also "open"
languages. What we need are unencumbered, full-featured, Free and
Open Source *implementations* of whichever languages we are going to
use and embrace. Yes, C# has mono, but that's like saying that
Verilog has Icarus. Both are noble and well-intentioned
implementations but they are not viable competitors to the proprietary
implementations. Hence the need for a Freecellera effort.
