And the open letter from Jim Allchin says...
A fact of life in computing (especially the Intel/AMD/x86/Microsoft world we are in)... but, slowly but surely, for the better.
(Life in Windows - "Whooooosh", goes the technologies: Here today, GONE later today (&, yet still around if needed, "legacy" methods still work, & in SOME cases? BETTER!))
Mr. Allchin's pretty straight up about how they support developers though, it's usually really good... & technet does the rest, above & beyond what is provided in their development IDE's, which since VS 2003, has been pretty awesome imo.
Today's development toolsets, like VS 2005, have more power as far as functions & things you can pull off fairly easily now (like thread use, even easier in some ways than Delphi even) in Visual Studio .NET 2005, but in some ways?
Desktop-development-side: .NET stuff's just NOT as speedy as "pure" Win32 code can be in std. executables, imo @ least, & not as potentially efficient being interpreted code, but more easily 'bulletproof & bug-free'...
HOWEVER, on its ASP.NET side? I'd rather do ASP.NET than traditional ASP & thus, faster, OR do ISAPI to do what ASP.NET DOES, very stably!
AND, I'd rather do web-services oriented stuff for instance, than DCOM, & accomplish the SAME thing better & faster plus less complicated, imo!
P.S.=> "Done, Done, & I'm on the next one... (Hey don't let it go to waste! I love it, but I hate the taste: Weight keepin' me dooooowwwnnn)..." Foo Fighters, All My Life
It NEVER stops, & changes SO fast - the only 'downside' imo... apk
