This is almost off-topic but since you guys are talking about that .NET
thing, I'd like just to ask anyone in here : WHAT THE HELL IS .NET???

I don't want any fancy buzzwords or corpspeak crap.  I just want a clear,
step-by-step explanation of what it is and what should I believe it's the
revolution MS claim it is.  Why are people investing bucks in developping
.NET software when nobody can clearly see what it is.  I'm surrounded by
skilled web and software architects and absolutely none of them has a
clear idea about this "next generation" framework/platform/strategy/initiative.  For me, .NET just looks like a
new branding strategy for all MS development product line.  What's .NET
but a mix of buzzwords and the deployment of big brotherish SOAP-enabled
services?

Any explanation of link to valuable online resource are more than 
welcome...

Regards,

Xavier
