DotNet

Do you know what DotNet is? Well, it was hard to me, but I finally cope with the idea.
But, do you know what Dotnet is useful for? What’s new in DotNet? What does DotNet have that I couldn’t have done with existing technologies?

This is a great question, and here is the answer: NOTHING. DotNet brings nothing new to the Internet. I’ll post here an (extensive) collection of links when I have time to. For now, read what Joel Spolsky (a former Microsoft employee, responsible for Visual BASIC for Applications and part of the Excel team) thinks. There’s also the answer of an anonymous Microsoft employee (part a of the actual Passport team).

Yep, even MS doesn’t know what DotNet is and does.
