C# To Move to ISO Standard

Microsoft is making full use of the ECMA/ISO fast track process to get c# ratified as an ISO standard. Good news for those of us who remember the farce of Sun's posturing in '99

Sun had pledged to make Java a standard, first through an ISO subcommittee and then through ECMA, but reversed course in 1999, saying it wasn't willing to hand off control of the technology. Instead, it formed the Java Community Process, which lets other companies help control Java but still gives Sun a position of power.
