The biggest challenge for .net is portability. According to my knowledge there are no framework available for other platforms except Microsoft.

Everything else is on par with any other technology, am I right guys? I would like to have experts comment on this!!!

You are right for now, but Microsoft has made a deal with Novell, so it will run on the Mono platform aswell

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You are right, but I can't see this argument as something important. More important is the fact that Microsoft nowadays see _communication_ with other systems/platforms as something important. Even though remoting is the way to go when building a system in a LAN, web services (standard protocols; http and soap) makes it possible for a .net built system to communicate with almost whatever external system you want.

But sure, if you build a system to reside not at a specific server platform but for any, .net is not a ideal framework. I personally haven't seen this as a real world problem though.
