I personally dislike Microsoft for their monopolistic practices, but all the computers I use run Windows, and most of them run MS Office. This is a clear case of putting practical considerations ahead of ideological ones.

In like manner, the developers of OpenSim, who probably would have prefered to use something open like Linux, chose to write OpenSim in C# so that it could run under the Microsoft .NET runtime. The OpenSim developers did this in order to benefit from the advantages of using such a widely-known programming environment.

This also may be one explanation for the increasing presence of Microsoft developers in OpenSim: with the .NET runtime they find themselves completely in their own element.

Though it's a controversial issue, there is a C# for Linux. Look up the Mono project.
