to Virtual ALT.NET
We’ve been hearing and reading quite a lot lately about folks that
were part of the ALT.NET community leaving the .NET platform and
moving on to other development platforms, not only for late night
coding but also for their day jobs. This seems to go along with these
people ventilating a lot of frustration regarding the .NET community
in general. The ALT.NET community efforts seems to be rapidly
declining as well, probably due to the fact that many of the most
active members were amongst the first to jump ship. What has changed
in the .NET space over the past couple of years, or perhaps, what
didn’t change. Do we eventually get fed up with the single vendor
driven community or do we get frustrated with the second-class role of
open-source in the .NET world?
