Pricing and Cost Advice
"The product and support for this solution are free for everyone.""The pricing could be cheaper.""There is a Community Edition that can be used free of charge, but the licensing cost for the Enterprise version is quite high.""If you want to develop an enterprise-level application, you have to purchase the enterprise-level development license.""The Microsoft .NET Framework is free of charge, without licensing cost.""For the moment I can only give the product a rating of five out of ten since only some of the customers will be satisfied, those that have the financial resources for hosting a platform on Windows Server."

Overview
.NET Framework is a software framework that runs primarily on Microsoft Windows. It includes a large class library named Framework Class Library (FCL) and provides language interoperability across several programming languages. Programs written for .NET Framework execute in a software environment named Common Language Runtime (CLR), an application virtual machine that provides services such as security, memory management, and exception handling. FCL and CLR together constitute .NET Framework.
