I sure would hate to be a firm that has committed to Microsoft as their platform for development. .net sounds like everything related to Windows programming for the last decade is not only suddenly "legacy" but is also in danger of becoming more and more unusable with each new release of the Windows Vision. It may seem trivial or even negative, but the fact that RPG and RPGII still runs on a 64 bit operating system seems to me to be even more dramatic now. _______________________ Booth Martin Booth@MartinVT.com http://www.MartinVT.com _______________________ nina jones <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent by: email@example.com 01/30/2001 08:39 PM Please respond to MIDRANGE-L To: MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com cc: Subject: Re: Java is now dead > > WEB FEATURE: MICROSOFT JUMPS THE JAVA SHIP, > WHILE IBM STAYS THE COURSE > http://www.as400network.com/news/nwn/story.cfm?ID=9392 > Microsoft announced plans to help programmers migrate from Java to > the Microsoft .Net platform, making the "write once, run anywhere" > ideal seem unlikely.
