Assuming this question relates to the statement on your
blog I think you have misinterpreted the direction of the
project (as I understand it).  The following quotes
indicate that PLT has no intention of shifting to a .Net
only world:


"To all others: Microsoft will not retain any rights and
results, if any, will be distrubted just like all other PLT
software. Note the caveat.

As Shriram has already pointed out, we see .Net for now as
just one more platform though as a platform on which we're
trying to merge. If someone had raised the funds to merge
Larceny and PLT Scheme on some other platform we would have
targeted that instead, too."

"MzScheme support won't suffer at all. Preserving the
current cross-platform nature is a top priority."
