<11BellyTimber> ## All the code gets compiled and outputs an exe?
<12DougFinke> ## LinqPad just announced a command line. Any thoughts? Have they approached you about using Scriptcs?
<5MarcoShaw> ## How “official” is ScriptCS? Will Server 2014 be written in ScriptCS? PowerShell first, then ScriptCS…
<0halr9000> ## like this: what’s MEF
<6jrusbatch> ## Is scriptcs extensible at all?
<12DougFinke> ## Some folks are concerned that Scriptcs is built on Roslyn, a CTP and the ecosystem is not there. What do you think?
<0Jaykul> ## Is Roslyn EVER going to actually ship?
<0Jaykul> ## Why is ScriptCS built on Roslyn instead of Mono’s (already shipped) REPL?

<3HalsWife> ##Blister in the Sun first pleasethankyou
<4Keith_> ## Do you thinking using Roslyn would allow you to build an effective in-app scripting solution complete with Intellisense and debugging similar to VBA?
<12json2> ## Doesnt Roslyn already permit loading/running .cs at runtime? What does ScriptCS add to the “WoW/LUA-like” scripting story?
