Kind of...

The best way to look at it as a newbie is like this. C# (and VB.NET) applications run on the .NET Framework, which must run on Windows. The .NET Framework provides a number of functions that you can use in your code. So when you use a method or class you haven't created, that'll be part of the .NET framework.

A Window, for example, is part of .NET. As is Console, from which methods like Console.WriteLine come.

Oh so windows OS isn't based on net framework. The .Net framework Is Part of windows OS? You develop applications incorporating the .net framework correct? So when a job asks for knowledge of .net framework I would have that by develops using C# ?

Basically, yes. C# without .NET is useless. But there are different versions of the .NET framework too, as they have been updated with new features.

A friend of mine said the .net framework is like a bunch of code that developers can call up rather than stating it explicitly. Which right yeah? I think I understand what it means now. Thanks though

Depends on which version of the .NET Framework you have installed on Windows. Don't worry too much about Windows for now. Just know that using C# you will need Windows underneath it.

Yes. The code you are using is mostly part of the .NET Framework.

Sort of. Do you want to have to write the code that deals with outputting text? That handles mouse clicks? Deals with files, printers, ports etc? No. The .NET Framework has the code to do this, and you use it.

The .NET Framework is a set of libraries that you can use, along with a runtime for .NET languages. Don't get all wrapped up in it. Most languages have something similar.

Also, to everyone that's told you to start learning Silverlight, don't. Microsoft has practically abandoned it in favor of their non-plugin web technologies like HTML5. It's not worth wasting your time on it.

However, it is worth learning some WPF, because that'll teach you XAML. That knowledge you can use when you move on to "modern style" applications for Windows 8.

My sentiments exactly.

MrShoes OT, but do you use that rename utility? Wow, all the options in one place. I use this application called ReNamer, very simple and nice GUI too. Plus it opens up an opportunity to learn Pascal. ^^

No, I just googled for "bad developer designed UI" and that's what I got.

Generally I write my own code for those sort of procedures to keep up the practice. But that does look very useful.

Haha yeah it looks real bad. I'll try to look for more too just to learn something about UI design as I have never done that.
