Does .NET Rock?

I had to maintain some fairly straight forward pre-.NET C++ code today. It really made me appreciate the .Net Framework! I was experimenting with a few performance ideas and spent an hour researching why it wouldn’t compile (a conflict between STL library and MFC) which could only be fixed by moving an include into “stdafx.h” to precede all others, then another involved solving a linking problem caused by the common runtime library conflicting with the statically linked MFC library, which required an explicit library link order to be defined!

.NET really does rock!
