Microsoft reportedly to launch native .NET compiler

According to this article on ZDNet, Microsoft is to launch a new native .Net compiler, codenamed "Project N", allowing C# developers (among others?) to benefit from some of the optimisations used in Microsoft's C++ compiler. One benefit will apparently be quicker launch times. I'm slightly skeptical about the benefit for run times (are lots of people using .NET for applications that will benefit from up-front native compilation as opposed to JIT compilation?), but I guess watch this space...
