.Net and marriage
For those who used .Net, if .Net was a woman, would she be someone you would:
j2ee is my wife, and Dotnet is the hot slut I sleep with on the side. (Our biggest client is J2EE, but I do as much sidework with dotnet as I can.)
As soon as our clients want to leave Unix, there may be an opportunity to date .Net. Not in the foreseeable future.
I'd marry .NET after the first date. Of course J2EE is pretty sweet two. If only I could have both....
Don Box: "COM was like an ugly woman with a heart of gold. You really had to want to fall in love, but once you did, it was forever. Java was like a beautiful woman with horrible breath. Sure she looks great from across a crowded room, but you really need to overlook certain annoyances if you plan on spending any time with her. The CLR is like a great looking woman with nice breath but since you are her first fling, you can't ask her ex for pointers on how to get along with her"
Java and .Net?
Java is a beautiful rich woman. Many would like to marry her for the simple prestige of it. She's high society all the way. She doesn't like football or any of those other "low-class" sports. She's really quite snobby. She keeps dangling this loose prospect of money. Everyone you've ever talked to says she's loaded with money, but you have a hard time getting any of it.
I will mary .Net, and take as much as I can from her. I'll drop her and mary her little sister .Net v2 once I can grab her...
