Well, .NET sounds to me as the first non-braindead MS technology. There may be
a lot of application development frameworks, but if .net lives up to the
claims of language independence (doubtful) or platform independence (MS -
also doubtful) it might actually be neat.

Otoh, I recently read in Linux Magazine (nl) a letter from a reader who said
python allready offers everything .net has. True or not, I can't tell...
