vrf .NET in VEE7

Question asked by VRFuser on Mar 23, 2004
Hi Rufus,

please, let others live with their opinion - it's only a tool, not a
religion!

We must face the reality: there is nothing really new or exciting within
.NET, but we can't blame Agilent for that. Some day, when they have bought
Microsoft, we can squeeze some really different concepts out of them ))

Personally, I would like to see VEE on top of a realtime OS - that would
alter a lot of things in one shot - and cause a lot of new pain, too.

Best regards,

Stefan
