  I thought most of the code was in C?

  Another counter to this would be that a lot of this kind of stuff is most
use on the server-side, and probably the best platforms for this are
Unix-like. Most computer users aren't interested in development anyway - I
would suspect that the majority of users that are doing stuff with RDF will
at least have access to non-MS machines...

   This has been possible for ages with Java solutions (SAX, SirPAC etc).
The bonus here is that you can do the development on the desktop platform of
choice, then deploy the same app to your  live platform of choice.

   Anti-nerdy, if anything.
