.NET (dotGNU too) When speaking to developers about WinFX one question that repeatedly comes up is, "WinFX sounds great, but what happens to .NET?" Vice President S. Somasegar describes the decision to rename WinFX to the .NET Framework 3.0. Now the WinFX technology you know has a name that identifies it for exactly what it is - the next version of Microsoft's developer framework.

Oh, and .NET is meant to be a competitor to Java, and like I said, if you wanted native access to resources, Java allows that; if you're going to go to all that trouble using managed code, why not stick with Java, which has a proven track record.

Sun wants you to live in an alternative universe where native code doesn't exist. JNI vs Pinvoke. Case closed.
