    .NET; What is your opinion?

    I'm curious to see opinions on .NET from the people here. Also, if you would, please state whether you are a high school student, college student, work at all as a developer, or if you have nothing to do with development other than teaching yourself. I'm interested to see what group of programmers like and dislike .NET and why.

    I'm a professional. I use .NET/C# because it's a big time-saver in Windows Client development. Very VB-ish without VB's ugly language features. A bit like Borland Builder, but with all the standards necessary for professional development, like UNICODE.

    That's exactly how I feel.

    I just got my license at work this past week. I've already got an XML parsing application going.

    Not exactly programming, but in our college networking class we found we couldn't promote a .Net machine to a second domain controller when the PDC was running W2K Advanced Server. If there's not some fix to this, migration to .Net as a server platform will be seriously delayed.

    .NET is the debil.

    ok seriously, i will never use it.

    why, several reasons, not neccessarily pretaing to .NET itself but its creators...

    1. I ABSOLUTLY CANNOT STAND FULL OOP! its disgusting... yuk...

    2. SEVERE LACK OF SECURITY!!

    3. EVERYTHING RUNS ON THE SAME DAMN RUNTIME!! which could be good or bad for efficiency it depends on how well its implemented. lets hope well.

    4. MICROSOFT! nuf said.

    5. I WILL NOT PARICIPATE IN THE PHASING OUT OF OLD STYLE PROGRAMMING, to where everything must be done on .NET and only .NET using MS certified OOP languages, NO I WILL NOT!

    6. i don't think i need to go on because the uninformed will now assume i'm an unreasoned MS hating kiddy who reads to much Slashdot.

    for those who think so, your very very wrong. i'm am far far from it.

    I want to use VS.NET for the new C++ compiler and other updates but I'm also interested in learning managed C++. I would like to learn what the BCL can do, and see how well managed and unmanaged code work together. In addition, web forms programming looks very interesting. Since you collaborate, I might want to use some C# or VB.NET together on those kinds of applications. I like the idea of assemblies and working in at a higher level of abstraction. I'm a College student.

    For the individual who complained about .net security, see:

    .net framework security
    067232184x

    There are also many articles at < www.microsoft.com >. The .net framework actually solves many security bottlenecks that users experiece with applications written in the old style.

    no flame war, but thats all talk and PR BS. alrighty.

    anyways even if they do manage to secure it, i still have more than enough reasons to avoit it! such as OOP... C++ is as far as it goes, it is just perfect, it allows both, Procedural and OOP.

    I guess you have no plans of working in a professional environment then. Because OOP is the standard of enterprise software development today.

    That's not what he was saying....he was saying that C++ allowed good OOP principals, but does not preclude you from writting procedural code

    I understand that, but why focus on procedural when OOP can do everything? Understanding OOP makes you just that much more valuable to employers.

    We have them, maybe beta version, not sure. They set up fine as the first domain controller, just don't want to be second or later...

    Yeah, they must be Beta. The normal release isn't for awhile. I think they delayed the release to continue work on security.
