.NET on the Rise
I brought you news about Visual Studio 2010, and also argued that Microsoft
treats developers particularly well. There are a few complaints that some tools
are overpriced and don't support enough non-Microsoft technologies, but overall
the programmers I talk to are pretty happy.
That may be the reason .NET
is on the rise, taking a few chunks out of Java's market share. According
to a new report by Evans Data, 60 percent of developers will invest more in
.NET. Developers are a finicky lot, so Microsoft is either doing something very
right or the Java camp is doing something very wrong.
Where do you stand -- behind Java or Microsoft? Tell me what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org.
