10 years ago, when I was starting to work with .NET Framework 3.5 (language version 3.0), its functionality was extremely limited for me because I began with SharePoint 2010. After studying a wider range of technologies and having an eye on .NET development, I witnessed its growth from a doubtful Java competitor to a cool cross-platform able to start daemons for Linux (though it was supposed to work with Windows OS only).
