In that context then, I agree with you. .NET is a huge step forward from their older material (I did only Windows web work until August 2000 myself so I left just before .NET was making its initial appearances). And your rule about 80-20 is one that I use myself often and I know it to be very true indeed.

I can only hope that Sun does answer Microsoft's offerings with equally strong offerings gathered together and packaged to an extent that it seems equally appealing to those who still have to make decisions about their development future.
