Personally, I cannot recall ever caring about the development platform for
software that I used. I suspect people who do not do software development
would care less about this. Then there is the other extreme of purchasers
for large agencies that will purchase one product over another simply by the
reason the latest buzzwords are used.

It's more cost-effective. On average, it takes fewer man-hours to write .Net
software than C++ software.

Good point. So that's cheaper for the development team...

What about the end product, and how does .net development help the
sales team sell a product developed in .net? e.g. "Our product uses
XML Web Services, so your existing software can talk to our product".

An application is an application. a .Net application is just an application
written using the .Net platform, so in that respect it's no different. But
as for your sales team, lower development cost can be translated to lower
cost for the end product.
