How many man-hours were used in creating .NET 1.0?

P: n/a
Does anyone know how many man-hours were used in creating .NET 1.0?

I thought it would be an interesting statistic to know.

Thanks.

Wow... I cannot even fathom. I once heard that the entire team (given all
of the languages) was well above 500 developers... I don't even know the
management.

I'm sure Anders has about 3,000 in there alone...

So you probably looking at a couple hundred grand when all was said and
done...

..NET was on the drawing board in the middle of 1997. You can figure out the
rest since the release date is common knowledge.

500 developer x 2000 hours per year = 1,000,000 hours per year?

3 to 4 years, maybe 5 years.

These developers don't really work a 9 to 5 to 40 hour week. Probably at
least a 60 hour week

so 500 developers x 3000 hour per year = 1,500,000 hours per year

1.5 millions hours/year x 3 years = 4.5 million man hours of programmers
only?

probably at least 500 people who are not programmers, but managers,
marketing, sales.

10 million hours?

Who saved? Bill Gates' personal worth went down by the billions while it was
under development.

Not enough.
Why?
In web applications I still have to use this crap HTML and Javascript. And
the whole logic of a web application is worse then mainframe applications in
70s and 80s. The only difference is that now we can play with pictures.
Regarding window applications I can create better looking and better
performing systems using other software.
The only good thing is C#.

This has nothing to do with DotNet, this has to do with by instance W3C.

The server side the logic is much more and the way Microsoft fixed that to
the W3C regulated clientside is really amazing.

You can make as well your window applications over Internet using dotNet
webservices.
Looks a lot better than that HTML, however those windows applications have a
lot more deployment problems.

Just my opinion,

You mean that W3C told M$ to keep Javascript?
And you mean that if W3C degraded my superb PC to a dumb terminal we should
accept this situation?

the W3C regulated clientside is really amazing.
But the result is horrible. I can bet that the Russians put a lot of work to
make Lada to confirm to USA requirements.

What is more important Client or Developer?

60 hour week at MS? Maybe a *lite* week. I would expect more around 70-100
hours a week there. I've have a couple friends that work there (yet still
can't find room for even a coffee boy..) and they work on average 75 hours
a week. My friend Henry was a PM for IE6, he would work 90 most often...
