.NET

You know, “.NET” is a stupid name for a framework.


I mean, it just sucks that this great technology has this stupid name.


You can’t search the ‘net for it (“.NET” is far too common).  That’s a huge disadvantage, although I guess C has the same problem. 


Is it descriptive?  Not really – it’s actually pretty misleading.  Most of the .NET framework doesn’t have anything to do with networking. 


I that when marketing comes up with a stupid name for a piece of technology, the developers should have some veto power.. then we wouldn’t end up with things like “Windows Me” , and “.NET”.


Just a wee rant.
