There seem to have been a bunch of projects to compile XYZ to .NET,
and most of them seem to have stagnated about a year ago.
For instance, I started wondering how much work it would be to use
ETOS (http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/~etos/) and a Scheme->.NET compiler
together. A quick search with Google found these scheme compilers:
All three of them have news items on the web page along the lines of
"February 2003: released sort-of working code, only a few major
features to go now". Maybe the devil is in the detail. Or maybe they
all got hired by Microsoft Research and are now working on Excel macro
Five years ago, compiling various languages to the Java VM was all the
rage, e.g. Kawa (http://www.gnu.org/software/kawa/) was born about then.
Kawa seems to be moderately successful, it has a fairly lively mailing
list, but it doesn't seem to have made Scheme any more popular.
