.NET (dotGNU too) "Four short years ago, Microsoft unveiled its new framework/engine for programming and running applications in a virtual environment, and the world was stunned. Microsoft had introduced a run-time environment that was for the first time a true 'write once, run everywhere' implementation, but that was far from being the end. With .NET 3.0 on the loom, NeoSmart Technologies takes a look at how far .NET has come and just how long it can keep going."

The summary described Java to a tee, yet called it ".NET."

And they called Sun "Microsoft."

In all seriousness, .NET is great for the kiddies. VB developers LOVE that stuff.

Java is where it's at for anything significant.

Yes, I'm not making a three figure salary creating high-performance distributed applications in C# that run on WS2003 at a Fortune 50 company.

It must be my imagination, and I must be a "kiddie".

The only true language and platform is Java. Everybody knows that. How could I not see it? I must go back to being a $25/hr Websphere code monkey one of these days to see how it feels to be you.

Your biting sarcasm wounds me deeply, like a blade tempered by the beard of Zeus.

And yes, you definately are a kiddie.

Just because you work with .Net-based distributed cash terminals at your job with MacDonalds, does not an enterprise systems engineer you make.
