The most valuable feature is the financial accounting.The most valuable features for us are web frameworks like MVC, Web API, and WCS.The most valuable features are the Domain Controller and the WBFS Manager.A great solution for creating program solutions in a framework for Microsoft Windows quickly and easily.Initial setup is straightforward. All the components are readily available.The addition of generics to handle common functionality across types, and the more recent upgrade of the dataset to the Entity Framework, has cut development time drastically, while increasing quality and confidence between builds.The .NET Framework simplified operations dealing with the allocation and deallocation of memory spaces and the additional processing resources.

Cons
