This entire argument breaks down if you go for e.g. Postgres and Mono/Linux. We do exactly this and it works great. The parts where .NET really shines are all open source (or have a good OS implementation, such as Mono).

Yes I agree there entirely. But you might as well use java and get the better tooling and staff availability then...

You can use emacs + ommisharp. Tooling is surprisingly awesome.

Thanks - will look at that!
