and as far as churning out new features and new builds that extend the .net framework goes. Im all for it. I started programming in vbscript for web and soon moved to .net when 1.1 was released (Fun Change ) and have really been pumped about the amount of push behind it at Microsoft. When .net 2.0 beta came out along with 2005 Express editions (for free none the less) It was like six months of christmas ! Im still just beginning to grasp some of the amazing possibilities that .net opens up and will continue to find new and interesting ways to explore it everyday for a long time.
