Already using it for customer work. And writing books and articles about it. But the nature of the computer book business is such that most authors have no choice about following the latest PR trends, so I'm not much of a data point.

We're using it to in our 2+ million line app.  It works fairly well.  We were suprised at first when many of the performance tests we did showed that C# is faster than C++.

We are actually seeing similar performance in real-world code.

I've been using it for all web dev for the last few months, and have just started my first WinForms app (a custom CMS).

question about speed..

from above..
"We were suprised at first when many of the performance tests we did showed that C# is faster than C++."

Have you figured out "why" it might be faster the C++?
How sure are you that your code is faster the C++?

Just curious on your opinion?

SourceGear Vault is being written entirely in C#.  The project has gone very well.  Very few surprises, and no ugly ones.
