.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."

There is a very real chance that .NET will be given the old heave-ho in favour of other solutions including dropping SQL Server and moving their server platform from W2K3 to Unix

Wow, crazy. I have the same experience, only ^-1.

All "java" enterprises are looking for speed and ease of develop. Yes, being a software architect, developer, etc. doesn't mean you need to be a NASA engineer. Get real ppl, developing with .NET is faster and easier; if done correctly, the results can be really great. I'm sorry but the VB haters have no argument anymore.

Java could be faster, maybe, maybe not. .NET could use less memory, maybe, maybe not. But the truth is that both are OK, only VStudio is *the* IDE to develop for Windows. And yes, a lot of people like to develop FOR windows, since it controls "most" of the desktop marketshare... not every developer is working for Linux/Mac/etc...

Get real.

I love Objective-C and my Mac.
