More .NET apps in Fedora Core 5 than Windows Vista?

Will Fedora Core 5 , the Linux distro supported by Red Hat, have more managed code than Windows Vista? It sure looks that way. Microsoft has made heavy use of .NET in their developer and enterprise products , but .NET is pretty much absent from Windows...

Wish: Subscription Abstraction Layer

RSS.NET and Atom.NET [1] are great, but they sure could use an abstraction layer. I'll bet the same conditional logic has been written hundreds of times, but I haven't found anywhere that it's been abstracted out as a standalone library. Think ADO.NET...

We need an Embedded Database for .NET applications

No, I'm not talking about Jet / Access. Microsoft and the general development community are moving away from it; plus, the MDAC redistributable is kinda big. No, I'm not talking about MSDE or SQL Server Express (even though the MDF file connections are...

[wish] Community code namespace standards

I'm happy to see the huge growth of community contributed code - things like RSS.NET, sharpziplib, ftp classes to tide us over 'til .NET 2.0, etc. One thing that bothers me about it is the namespaces. The .NET System namespaces are beautifully organized...

While it's frightening to go out on a limb with a fringe statement like this (heck, even Frans goes party line on this one!), I'm willing to stand up and be counted in the Free Whidbey movement (logo to follow). While it's difficult to find the courage...

'System.Uri.NonPathPart' is inaccessible due to its protection level

'System.Uri.NonPathPart' is inaccessible due to its protection level Argh! Why? Parsing URL's is a pain, the System.Uri object's got some nice utility functions that show the right values in a watch window, and I can't use them. I hate duplicating this...

XAML Emulator?

Wouldn't an Avalon / XAML emulator be great? Kinda like the PocketPC emulator that's part of the MS Embeded Visual Toolkit. Then those of us who didn't get to PDC, don't have Longhorn, but would love to start working with XAML could at least start getting...

ASP.NET New Web Project System

As a full time ASP.NET developer, this is one of my favorite Whidbey features: ASP.NET offers support for File System and FTP projects, and much smoother Local IIS integration. That's going to save me tons of time and aggravation. The DLL location process...

Fix and Continue...

C-based language developers don't want Edit and Continue, right? Unless they're coding on a Mac (OSX Panther release)... Fix and continue Waiting for single-fix turnarounds — stop app, fix bug, compile changes, link objects, run app — is unquestionably...
