Template talk:.NET Framework
|WikiProject Microsoft / .NET / Windows||(Rated Template-class)|
In my opinion, the article Comparison of Visual Basic and Visual Basic .NET should be added as a link of this template. However, that article is not created, and I think it should be created...
The introduction of Visual Basic .NET is controversial since it breaks backward compatibility from Visual Basic. On the other hand, comparing the two languages can help system migration from old language to new language. Unfortunately, in light of Upgrading from Visual Basic 6.0 and many sources, the application upgrade is not an easy job...
I will make a request of article creation in the section Computer languages My Computer of the page Wikipedia:Requested articles/Applied arts and sciences/Computer science, computing, and Internet.

Since development of IronLisp is aborted in favour of development of IronScheme, I suggest to add the IronScheme link and probably delete the IronLisp link. The article for 'IronScheme' was created by me as a stub. Jacosi (talk) 10:14, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
- I've gone ahead and added it. I'd leave IronLisp in there since we still have an article on it, and the navigational box' purpose is to list related links. Until we run out of space, or the IronLisp article is possibly merged into IronScheme I see no reason to remove it.

Moving M, IronPython & IronRuby from 'Other' to 'Common' languages
Apparently, M will be included with Visual Studio 2010. I've heard that IronPython and IronRuby might be included too, but I've not seen that substantiated. Can we get some verification on these claims? If these languages end up being shipped with VS2010 then they should be listed as 'common' languages rather than 'other' languages. --coldacid (talk|contrib) 03:20, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Should there be a discontinued line?
"Acropolis" never got further than CTP and has been discontinued. Should there be a separate "Discontinued" line in the template for Acropolis and the like? Paul Foxworthy (talk) 05:38, 30 June 2010 (UTC)
Windows Workflow Foundation abbreviation
Microsoft consistently abbreviates Windows Workflow Foundation as WF. The main article uses WF too. WF is clearly not a typo and the template should match the article. WF may be used for legal reasons as the World Wide Fund for Nature has previously prevailed in a case affirming their trademarked use of the abbreviation WWF. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 01:29, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
- Hi. We have no obligations to do exactly what Microsoft does. We have our own Manual of Style.
- The part about legal reasons is your own speculation and a far-fetched one too: Trademarks are restricted in their trademark fields. It means A record label use "Apple" in spite of the fact that "Apple" is also a mark of Apple Inc. (This has actually happened.)
- I might check the main article too.
