why don't we have forums or incubators for microsoft technologies like, etc. since this site is transformed from "javaranch" to "" . I know that we have "other languages" section but , why not a seperate section is my question out of curiosity?

I don't speak for he who rules this site, but I believe that the intention is to start trialling further forums such as what you propose through the Incubator forums. Watch this space!

Edit: I stand corrected, please see Paul W's response below!

I don't care for microsoft.

We won't have .net or c# forums here.

Gregg is managing the incubator. If I see something start up there that I don't like, I guess Gregg is going to be really mad at me when I delete them.

(I cannot decide if I will be happier to have gregg create them and then I delete them (because I will find pleasure in deleting them) or if I will be more content if they just never existed here - after all, I would be upset to see them here)

You're going to need to delete one once the server gets bounced then. Have fun!
