depends on the functionality you need. So, what are your requirements
for this messenger application? And, are you trying to create a MSN
Messenger clone type application?

yes, I am trying to make a clone of the original. The requirements are only
two.

it doesn't require users to install .net framework and it should be as fast
as the original client

thanks.

The first requirement eliminates C#.

So there is not way to write a C# application without requring users to
install .net framework? There has to be a way to work around that?

Thanks.

I don't think you could find a work around for that,
since the MS C# can only work on .NET framework, unless you build your own
compiler(by following the C# spec) to compile the C# code to (let's say) java
bytecode or someother native code that your app targeting at.

Hope it helps,

No, there is not, C#, VB.NET and other 'managed' languages need the
Framework libraries and the Runtime to be present on the system, there is no
way arround this.
