What about Web++, Web#, Web.NET.  Oh yeah Web# or Web.NET is what a 
certain Seattle based company thinks it should be.

Yeah all those twos were ... interesting.  Missed DOS 1.x used 2.x, saw 
Windows 1.x & 2.x and avoided it until 3.x, Linux 0.99 was where I got 
started ( found it ).  Missed Perl 2.x didn't find it until 4.036 ( on 
DOS 3 ).  What's a Python?  Some big snake ... right?   Still avoiding 
that. ( Wondering where PASCAL X.x -- the savior from bad programming 
practices -- went. ) Can't wait for Parrot 2.0.
