Boo is new, well at least relatively new. If you are familiar with Python and C#, you can feel right at home. Most of Boo is written in C# by a Python devotee. Boo has static typing, but also mimics dynamic typing by inference. This way you are not in a complete straight-jacket. It runs in the NET or MONO environment, can be interpreted or compiled and a Python-like shell is available too. Boo is open source, developed enough to allow for serious experimentation. For those of you who have used the SharpDevelop IDE for C# there is a Boo plug-in. This code snippet will compile to a 10k executable file and can be distributed along with a 64k Boo.Lang.dll (runtime DLL) to other .NET or Mono computers. A utility to convert Boo to C#, or C# to Boo has been published.
