Happy Tenth to .NET

The .NET Framework turns 10 on June 22. We were alerted to this by Jim Payne, a longtime .NET developer and loyal Visual Studio Magazine and MSDN Magazine reader. I was at Network World running the news group when it launched, and Bill Gates personally toured, giving details of the system. At that time it was largely designed to thwart Java's multiplatform push.

Payne himself penned a piece in honor of this special occasion. Check it out here.
