Microsoft .NET technology and IBM ion Power Systems have been used together now for several years, and Richard Schoen has been discussing the combination for the duration--and recently brought the subject up again at a recent Omni User meeting in Chicago.

Schoen realizes that the topic is not mainstream, mainly because Microsoft and IBM don't agree about many aspects of the combination.
