Microsoft it's time to patch .Net
Something goes wrong with .Net 1.1 in production. I passed the critical boiling point and I am fed up doing anything else than my current job.
I can't anymore innovate with .Net. My days are spent on debugging.
And I am not talking about my mistakes. No I am ranting now about Microsoft mistakes.
The list now of issues start to be long. I also losing my credibility with my colleagues.
If only it was my hosting server. No this happens with other solid rock hosting companies.
OK here we go with 3 of the very very annoying things which turn my .Net dreams in nightmares.
1 - General Network Error
I tried everything possible (thanks to Minh, Travis, and everybody) to give me their feedback.
The problem is that nobody can agree on one and simple solution.
2 - System.OutOfMemoryException
Yes you read well, in .Net 1.1 you can occasionally have this mysterious error crashing your site.
3 - Viewstate errors
This one can be fixed by adding EnableViewStateMac=false in the Page directive. It's just a pity that we have to think this will happen maybe some time soon or later. No thanks to Microsoft to not providing this answer in their KB.
I checked the Knowldege Base for .Net related issues, and yes the list is long.
It's quite incredible also that for most of them you haveto call Microsoft to receive a fix. Download don't exist anymore with Microsoft ?
Give me back my joy to be a developer, and release all these fixes as a Service Pack as soon as possible.
We can't afford waiting another year. I don't want any more new functions, I want thing fixed.
Do we need to write a petition to have thing moving ?
Microsoft it's time to patch .Net !
