Do you think .Net will succed? or will it fail and become a distant memory?

It's too early to predict either way. I'll hear wait till I hear what the industry experts have to say.

I picked option three. I think that the .NET stuff will be pretty useless, and will not adversely affect the use of computers at all. Although, because it is Microsoft, it will probably be pretty popular, just like any version of Windows.

.NET is not exactly a version of Windows. It's a new framework, a new class library, a new way to deal with programming problems. It's great stuff. It's like Java without the mistakes Java made. It's like C++ with the ease of use of VB. It's a really good product, but I think there are many people out there who just look at the cover, see Microsoft and think it must be bad. Get over it people. If you think it sucks, then get informed. If you still think it sucks after gathering information and testing, I will hear your arguments. Maybe you are right. But without information, an opinion is not worth the bytes it produces here.

I guess .NET being Microsofts flagship, it will succeed, good or not. But I hope it does, because it really is usefull.

.NET framework supplies one library that all supported languages can call. It's broken up into Windows Forms, Web Forms, and Web Services. Also all new editions of Microsoft servers such as SQL, Exchange, Biztalk, BackOffice, etc, will become .NET servers. The .NET framework is an execution environment that derives functionality from the operating system. It is a massive undertaking that really just solves many of the complications for writing programs for the Windows operating system. It will be much easier to maintain compatibility, security, and managability in a pure object oriented environment.

I still think that if you don't know your operating system than you are not going anywhere. That includes myself. I still have not completed MCSE certifications, but it has never been more apparent the need.

.NET's good stuff, but you should have included an intermediate option somehwere in there, like "It's good, but can it get me my beer?"

I didn't say it was Windows. I'm comparing it to the success of windows.
