One of the things I’ve always loved about Flash was the transparency regarding the player version penetration, adoption rates, geographical data and so on.
The way we could relatively easy decide what Flash version to target, e.g. “should we use AS3/Flash9 for this project considering that it’ll be completed in 4 months?”
Is there something similar available for .NET framework? Basically I’m trying to decide whether to move a .NET App from Framework 1.1 to 2.0 or not. Moving to 2.0 would ease our work, but on the other hand I don’t feel like requiring the users to upgrade (installing NET can be a hassle since it require rebooting).
