    What are others opinions on software running on .NET please. Does it impose a load, memory or other, to slow down other programs that might need more memory.

    most of my interaction with .NET is strangely from opensource and Linux aps\installs

    for instance building a bootable SLAX USB drive in Windows
    so they arent exactly resident

    memory, it does use a chunk of ram for the framework, which for a small utility might be a lot.
    It sure does scale well, with larger apps/heavy use - it more down to how well written the code is, than the framework itself, for example I spent 10 months developing a stats based website in asp.net, where we paid close attention to optimisation due to having to pull back a lot of data. Compared to a project that I have recently joined halfway through (and smaller), I ran some server stress tests and found that there was a 5x scalability difference (in terms of simultanous pages that can be served).

    Hello again djg05.

    This could very well be our answer from that Pimero thread you posted. ;)

    Cheers.

    Yes - I did have a reply from them which in essence confirmed the above replies.



    To All

    Thanks for the feedback though I am still not clear about it and how running .NET affects the overall performance of m/c.

    I am not sure aa I am no developer, but a thought: if the app's code is not well written, then .NET has to work more in order to provide a more stable platform and connect all the loose ends in a client program. And by doing this, it utilizes more memory. Developers, does that make any sense?

    .net has garbage collection and trys to close objects connectioned to external resources, eg a file, sql server etc which have not been explicitly closed,

    My experience is that it doesn't do a good job of this, it defiantly does hinder performance. Its not so bad at cleaning up internal objects, strings, integers, arrays etc.
