    Reviewing 2.0 Alpha 4 (Sep 11, 2007)

    it works but not that impressed!

    Reviewing 1.0 Beta 4 (Mar 16, 2006)

    If you want to play with the new 2.0 toys, you can download the Express versions of VB.NET and C#.NET for free. Including the SQL Server 2005 Express all that allow you to write software and distribute it free of charge.

    I'm not sure if these will work with the Python add-on, I'm guessing they might. But you do get several other languages to play with, all for free.

    Can't beat that with a stick.

    Reviewing 0.9.5 Alpha (Nov 19, 2005)

    I guess most people didn't see the bit on the right stating its requirements as .NET Framework 2.0?

    Nice idea and runs very fast considering it is a CLR scripting language. Nice to see not just MS languages getting CLR support :)
