I love .NET, but I never understood how people could have used the language since its birth. Like, it was a pretty bad language (alongside Java) in those early years. It only started to come to life as a worthwhile tool in 2008-2012. Whatever. Let the past die, I guess. All I know is 2020 .NET is freaking amazing; .NET Core changed the game and finally made me feel good about dropping C++ as a primary language. I am working on a brand new game + game engine in C#, and I've never been happier.

It was still pretty cool back in the old days, it's just way better now.
