Hi,

Microsoft theme was "The network is the computer" . The term "Dot-Com" was synonymous with the Internet that time, and "Dot-NET" was a play on that term.Microsoft named so many products with the ".Net" nomenclature like .NET My Services and Microsoft .NET Enterprise Servers where the latter had nothing to do with the Internet. Microsoft correct things by limiting the .NET name to technologies related to the Managed run time framework.

Thanks & Regards

Hi,,

.NET is natural for Microsoft marketing to emphasis on the "Network"-ing aspect of its technologies and reacted to the marketing blitz by Sun Micro System in the late 1990 where the theme was "Network is the computer". The term "Dot-Com" was synonymous with the Internet that time, and "Dot-NET" was a play to that word.

The Microsoft .Net is a new internet technology or rather strategy introduced by Microsoft. .Net was originally known as the NGWS (Next Generation Windows Services) which was said to be an Internet based platform of Next Generation Windows Services. Before the official announcement of .Net, NGWS was the term used to describe the above phrase.

In the word .Net

. represents object oriented programming

&

Net represents Network Applications

So overall meaning of .Net is developing Network applications using object oriented programming language.
