Now you've gotten my interest. I was wondering how many customers would
start asking about .NET for development. Like many Firebird users, we are
Delphi developers and have been reluctant to move to .NET development simply
because of the legacy applications we have. I haven't had too many
customers bring this up, but I wanted to know if they gave you any rationale
for why .NET development is important to them? Or is this just buzzword

If its buzzword speak, you could always tell them that you are committed to
.NET, Corba, XML/XLST, IPv6, Java, Mac OSX, AI, Longhorn, all Matrix
episodes, iRobot, and any other futuristic technology endeavors, if that
would make them feel happier :)
