    Sounds like you didn't get the talking points memo. We don't mention that they are rich. Remember we want to look buisness friendly. MS just is evil, there is no explanation needed.... it is an axiom

    seriously, what do you see as the advantages (or strengths) of .net? Most of what I hear appears to be propaganda on both sides (ie .net will cause the earth to implode or .net will cure cancer)

    heres a question that ive heard answeres to but never actualy understood. wtf is .net? why do we need it and who benifits from it? did microsoft actualy make it or did they just copy everything there was before and put a e-based name on it? how much does it cost and how many 3rd world country children died because of it?

    Let me second that question. I've been using Linux exclusively since before I heard of .Net, so I'd very much appreciate an objective discussion of .Net vs. Java. I don't know if such a thing is possible, but I would very much appreciate hearing it.

    I had a breif read on .net the other day its an API for developing so called rich web apps http://www.microsoft.com/net/ I didnt read much into it just what it is according to them (an ASP replacement I think?).

    hehe, i love a bit of windows bashing in the morning...

    windows doesn't deserve to be more popular than linux but, as budman7 said, it gives a lot of people jobs lol
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    i just read the MS article on .NET and it seems to talk about stuff that is already possible. linking accounts to stocktaking seems like something a lot of businesses already do, without the help of .NET. correct me if i'm wrong but that is advertising absolutely nothing special at all.
