is it going to be like working in the Microsoft .NET environment?
people will be shocked at the extent of the change. This isn't just
an upgrade between versions of the same product... Visual Studio.NET
is a new platform, it is not a language.
open platform is in - People will find that the .Net framework
environment opens up some of the complexities hidden in Visual Basic
6, resulting in greater challenges but with new benefits.
Stricter rules are in - Visual Studio.NET is more serious, and difficult
to compile than the Visual Basic 6 due to a tightening of some programming
rules such as variable usage. Gone is the traditional variant declaration.

and significant Internet development incorporates new web services
that finally puts the flawed DCOM model to rest.
