Interesting comment, and you are correct that Java programmers are the highest paid. Too bad you don't see that as the problem with Java programmers. We (management) need to reduce your numbers by utilizing more widely available tools and languages, not to mention faster.

Tony's clever use of grammer is typical of the poor fools who promote the use M$'s virus enabled software.

I agree in part, .Net cannot scale up. It can however scale out, which means MS gets more money for .Net server licenses. So .Net scales the way MS intended it to ;)

I also don't see to many Java programmers running scared from .Net They are still the highest paid in the industry there have been plenty of salary surveys that proove this. Check out CRN mag or MS loving Fawcett Pulications Java pro mag if you don't believe me.

Gates is no dummy, when he returned to development 2 yrs ago he put his company even further ahead through development (the way MS has always outspent their competition). Apple and Sun cry monopoly but these days are far less Open (std.) than MS. Sun is history because it can't outperform Intel anymore. Check their stock price. Linux may eventually replace Windows but not if its price/performance ratio isn't better. Have you noticed the price creep in Openware lately? SuSe on Intel is the new leader in bang for the buck!

Why do java developers get so worked up when they talk about .net, do you feel threatened?

.Net doesn't scale? what you do mean? you just keep throwing hardware at it. If you programmed proper usage of the session variable and db connections that is. and each machine only has to cost 10k instead of 180K though you will need a manaagement tool like app center but still pretty darn easy and the speed gain we have seen has been awesome

.Net? Does it work with BetaMax or VHS? I guess time will tell which is b..., or whatever.

Phuck all you morons. MS appears to be the only company with the big picture in mind. Sun is only interested in covering its A, and from the botch recently in CA, it is trying to get as much as it can, regardless of whether it deserves it or not. MS may, admittedly, make mistake occasionally, but they are the big dog, and have the most talented people working for them, and always try to get it right, even if it isn't on the first attempt. Kudos to MS.

.NET doesn't scale? And Sun does? Yes, Sun, if you throw 200K at it will be faster then a Compaq server (and cost you $180K more). After all, more power to most programmers just means they can write code that is sloppy that still works. Microsoft is doing great with .NET, and most of the complaints you read here, are from people that simply hate the fact that Sun lead over Intel is slipping. Given the fact that everything that ran on an 8086 (20 years ago) works on a P4, I think Itel has done wonders. Sun fans can't say that ALL of their old code still works.

How is it that ENT determined MS has retained it's customer base? It's way too soon to determine this.

Our CTO is quite upset that our VB code needs to be rewritten. A new framework was created for our apps to bridge our Com components with Java, with the intent of eliminating the Com layer over time. .Net has no future here!

.Net cannot scal beyond Intel. This is a big problem!

It appears that at least one faction within MS wanted to correct this. Thus MISL was created. It also appears that other fanctions realized that platform independance makes Windows irrelavant.
Thus .Net DOES NOT SCALE! Intel will just not cut it in the largest enterpise systems.

.NET doesn't scale to what?
on same hardware sql server+asp.net runs 30% faster than oracle+jsp
(eweek.com lab test)
java doesn't scale if not with 4X as much hardware/price

.Net is a major victory for Sun. I cannot understand why MS would cast aside what was arguably the most productive programming tool ever created (Visual Basic for Windows) for a "platform independant" programming tool that still requires Windows! Makes me laugh. All it tells me is that Sun must be doing something right!

.Net looks as though it is going to be a .Disaster. It brought essentially nothing new to the table and it seems as though all of the web services players have cought up to MS anyway. Let's not forget one more important problem. .Net doesn't scale!!!!!

Typically any project that lasts 2 years will alter its course during the life cycle. Also, the feedback given during the betas will command some of those changes. The .NET concepts of the languages have generally been well received by developers. The real outcome will be determined when we begin releasing products developed under .NET, once again pushing things to whatever limits are possible.
