Is converting my Apps to .Net a really good idea?
All my applications are developed in Native Code. I am hesitant to move to .Net because of all the negatives that I hear, such as:
- Slow response time
- Lock-In into Windows
- Dependance on huge .Net run-time that makes installation a pain and slow as well.
Your advice will be much appreciated.
Don't do that just for the sake of converting.
If you have some other technical reason to convert, then you should consider it, but be aware that it is not a small change, especially for larger projects.
EDIT: I also want to add that it would be better if you start some small project in .NET, just to know what to expect, and later decide is the conversion of existing projects valid option.
