It's another way to say that .NET sucks because now it looks more like Java!

Java was just a draft blue print for .NET.

I was pretty sure the author was joking until I read his conclusion. Still perplexed, is this a joke?

Just listing the features of the .NET 3.5 framework and smashing them doesn't make a good post. You are forgetting that many of these features is what developers like. LINQ is a great change for the .NET framework, and because you don't like it doesn't mean others don't.

I think the title is just wrong, the author lists as many pro's as con's. Though I take an issue with too many of them to want to write it here, for starters item 1-3 might have made sense in 1997 but not today.

In this blog post, I'm speaking for those who don't. I don't really think that .NET sucks. There still a lot of space for improvement of course but I would never go back to VB6 or old C++.

Well Eric, why have the all the scathing comments been deleted? Are you to embarrased. And what's with the latest post saying you did it to get our attention? Do you think we were born yesterday. At least have the balls to put the comments back.

Java is way too manual in many ways still and just feels archaic. I like my VS UI development environment and would never give that up for anything that is out there today....the Java UI tools STILL look like dinosaurs to me with their boring ass UI. I can get up to running very quickly and easily with VS and have a lot easier time finding the resources I need rather than the shitty verbose lousy Sun Learning hideous learning site. UNIX & Linux with it's configuration is also a major pain in the ass. And is anyone tired of the Java service running on their windows PCs for things that are of Java....I am. Stop bugging me! You don't see the .NET service bugging you to update every day. So no, Java is not the end all and I see a LOT of shops moving from JAVA to .NET because of the cool shit we can do, new ways to code, etc. that ARE different from a Java environment thank God. I'm not one to say ASP.NET is the end all either (I like the new ASP.NET MVC...even if it's copied from the rest of the world) and I think C# is great and I would not trade it for Java at all even if it's now closer to a Java world...we're all entitled to our own opinion right ;)
