C# Nuggets

What language was ASP.Net originally written in?

In this video, Peter Hallam, one of the original C# designers talks about a new C# v3 feature, but also says that WinForms was the original consumer of the C# language.

This totally contradicts my understanding. I thought that ASP.Net (XSP) was the original team using C# and that WinForms (WFC as it was) was only ported to C# from Java over the winter of 1999/2000 by Chris Anderson.

Am I wrong?

ASP.NET was the first team to use the CLR. We actually used a custom compiler called "SMC" (simple managed C) that existed before C# was available. We then ported to C# once it became available. Hope this helps, Scott
