What's your language preference (C#, VB.NET, F#, other)?

C# but I have experience in other lamguages like VB, C, C++, Borland Delphi.

Do you use the .NET Framework mostly at work, home or a good mix of both?

Mostly at work.

How long have you been using the .NET Framework?

A few years, maybe since 2006/7, though I had some exposure back in 2000 when it first came out.

Which feature or aspect of the framework do you enjoy working with the most?

I don't have a preference yet but it's nice not to have to allocate memory and work directly with the Windows API as much. Not so many message pumps and WM_COMMANDs to be handled - yay!

For whom do you work? Just curious.

I'm a software developer, born in Northern Ireland, moved here in 2002. I like reading, watching movies on the big screen, kevin smith movies, sci-fi stuff. I like art goings-on, member of the carnegie and phipps.
