.NET Framework is a Microsoft initiative that aims for a single platform for development and implementation of systems and applications. It has, the ability to use the Web rather than your own computer for various services.
Microsoft's goal is to provide individual and business users with a seamlessly interoperable and Web-enabled interface for applications and computing devices and to make computing activities increasingly Web browser-oriented. The .NET platform includes servers; building-block services, such as Web-based data storage; and device software. It also includes Passport, Microsoft's fill-in-the-form-only-once identity verification service.
With the .NET Framework, our programmers can create mobile, desktop, and web applications that run on Windows PCs, devices and servers and it's included in Visual Studio.
