    Re: Whats the deal with .net



    Well, I suppose there are technical aspects to this question, as long as
    the thread doesn't get bogged down in non-technical discussion.

    Yes, Visual Studeo .NET is a replacement for Visual Studio 6.0.

    In a broader sense, .NET is a new marketing brand that will be applied across
    several products. For example, XP Server will be known as .NET Servers, etc.

    Web Services creation is a new tool in VS.NET, but it's a total development
    environment, not just a web service tool.

    You can publish anything you want with .NET with the same licensing distribution
    as you use today. There's no "extra" charge for that. If you use Microsoft
    web services (or any other companies' web service) from your program, you
    may be charged a fee. For example, someone might create a web service that
    feeds live stock quotes, and charge you $0.02 every time you hit the service
    from your program, plus some agreement charge upfront.

    Z: As Kunle suggested, your question is more appropriate for the
    vb.dotnet.discussion group. I have moved your message there. Thanks!

    Not at all

    I guess it hadn't been moved when I replied to it.

    Rob: Except that I've already moved the original question over to
    vb.dotnet.discussion and replied to it there, so now the same subject is
    being discussed in two newsgroups. ;-)

    Would you mind continuing the discussion in the vb.dotnet.discussion group?
    Thanks!
