So in 1999 what should have been chosen?  Neither Parrot nor .NET were even 
around.  Parrot itself is another virtual machine, being used for Perl6.  
And .NET is currently Microsoft specific, the GNU implementation Mono still 
far enough behind to be considered a stable platform on Unix, or even 
Windows itself.
