(1) You should probably have started another thread, as this has nothing to do with the topic of the current one. Perhaps you could get a moderator to move your post and mine off to a whole new thread?

(2) To say that Microsoft has lost faith in .NET is misleading. I haven't read the whole article you referenced (not enough hours in the day for that), but I have skimmed it. Seems to me the gist of the article is that Microsoft isn't basing the new Longhorn/Vista browser on .NET. Quite a bit of difference in that statement and the one you made, wouldn't you say?

Yes it does. He's wondering about whether to use ASP.

From the article:

This indicates to me that Microsoft is losing confidence in .NET.
Don't know why I typed 'faith' instead of 'confidence' but I read the whole article at least.


Seems to me the gist of the article is that Microsoft isn't basing the new Longhorn/Vista browser on .NET.No, you are wrong.


Quite a bit of difference in that statement and the one you made, wouldn't you say?No, you are wrong but I read the article.
