What is Microsoft .NET?

What, exactly, is Microsoft .NET?  That's a question I'll be answering over the next six or seven months in my new position.  The local Microsoft Technology Center contracted with my employer,Catapult Systems, for a technical writer.  More specifically, for a programmer who can write.  So for at least as long as this contract lasts, I'll be working on .NET documentation and training materials at the local Microsoft office.  This pretty much removes me from direct involvement with the Inquisite product that I've been working with for the last 3-1/2 years.

I find it ironic that a month after I announced my plans to try moving away from Windows at home (see my entry for November 2), I find myself totally immersed in Microsoft technologies at work.  This should prove interesting.
