.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."

Best dev tools?

Ever tried eclipse? Ever tried Netbeans? JBuilder? JDeveloper? Sounds like maybe you're not speaking from experience.

Having a *choice* of platforms and tools is perhaps just an advantage you're not accustomed to.

Unfounded MS hatred? I don't hate MS personally, they produce *some* good software. However, I don't think it's the best bang for your buck. It's not the best out there and it just doesn't justify the price tag. I'll take superior quality + zero license fees any day, thanks.
