    ASP.NET living here?

    Are ASP.NET discussions going to take place in this forum?

    Just curious, who else is using ASP.NET?

    I am waiting for Visual Studio .NET to be released. I think I would be developing in C#. Last night I was going through its specifications (at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library) and it really look good to me.

    I just cant wait to get my hands on VS.NET.

    I've already "tuned in" two people to it's technology.

    Great stuff, great stuff.....

    ASP.NET + CSS + XML = "What the we SHOULD be"

    .Net

    I have been using the beta 2 and its good stuff.
    C# and XML within an ASPX page is powerful stuff, and its not that difficult if you have programmed Java and c++ before.

    Sure it is interesting - and I think it's far more powerful and much cooler than plain ASP, however one need to look at it from a practial view

    1. The product has not been released yet. Will be soon however , I know

    2. I am pretty sure as with any MS product it will take two service packs before the product is good enough to be used in production systems. This has been the case ever since NT 4.0.

    3. A little more on the second point: Especially since it naturally is going to be used in an Internet environment, I would be really careful. I mean MS have had big problems with security leaks in IIS and the ASP engine ( which is pretty much a sandbox, remember ) today. How should they be able to control it with .NET which is not an sandbox anymore but instead gives the developers options to do pretty much anything.

    So yet I think .NET will rule the world - cause from the developers view it simply rocks , but I think it will be a while. I am pretty sure there will popup a lot of hosting companies screaming "We support .NET" however my company will lay low until it has been really tested.

    Thumbs up

    I agree with most of the above ^ however there is an open source .Net alternative.
    Off the top of my head i can't remember what it is called, or what stage the development is at. If you go to sourceforge i am sure you could find it.
    Just expressing that if your not wanting to use Microsofts .Net product then there is an alternative.

    Are you sure there is an open source? from what I think microsoft is not going to make it easy for me to get a hold a copy of it. simply because the price they'll set is going to be high for me as a student with a partime job that dont pay very well.

    If you know equivalent Open Source then let me.

    Thanks

    Open source not piracy. Means people in the linux community also want to develop software with the latest technologies.

    go to http://sourceforge.net and search for .Net they are out there.

    you go and tell that to all the people who actually uses cracked version of softwares?

    And also to the crackers who spends hours after hours cracking, insread they sould concentrate on Open Souce Developoment, They should use their skill actively to produce better package than retail.

    well cracking is fun, you see how months of work by big brothers unfolds to hand of crackers with in hours, and that crackers are mostly the 10 yrs old just got his new pc yesterday.
