comment What are some arguments AGAINST using EntityFramework?
Argument against: 1st & 2nd & 3rd: It's SLOW !!! There's a learning curve (need to know how to do a left join - takes 3 hours to find out a way how to do it so another person will know what is being done...), paging in LINQ instead of SQL (e.g. feches 10 milion rows, then takes 20 of them from an arbitrary offset, and then you wonder why it is that slow)... The Repo is Non-Tread safe, you have to init it on a per query basis, and repo initialization is VERY SLOW (like 5 seconds) if you have a larger database (that means 100-200 tables, not REALLY REALLY large).

comment When to favor ASP.NET WebForms over MVC
"That is why we are investing in both." And when we see that web forms starts to decline, we will mercilessly drop it because investing in an ultimately dead product is not in our best business interest.

comment Mono is frequently used to say “Yes, .NET is cross-platform”. How valid is that claim?
Or you can just run Debian/Ubuntu, use a few external apt repositories, and play with the cool kids without compiling mono from scratch.

comment Rewrote GNU GPL v2 code in another language: can I change a license?
Definitely not. Think about it: The GPL would not make any sense if it was like that. You could just take any GPL v2 code, and switch it to LGPL. That would make the GPL superfluous. Take a look at the fineprint: "LGPLv2.1 gives you permission to relicense the code under any version of the GPL (not LGPL) since GPLv2. If you can switch the LGPLed code in this case to using an appropriate version of the GPL instead (as noted in the table), you can make this combination." That only means that it's legal to switch your LGPL library to GPL, but not vice-versa. Which makes sense again.
