You could have looked this up for yourself... on wikipedia for example (wiki article about the .NET Framework)

A great resource for .NET articles is the MSDN Library. For example, check out this article titled "Overview of the .NET Framework".

The MSDN library contains many articles on how to use the components available to you in the .NET framework. It is my go-to resource when ever I have a question about anything related to .NET

The .NET Framework is a software framework developed by Microsoft that runs primarily on Microsoft Windows. It includes a large library and provides language interoperability (each language can use code written in other languages) across several programming languages. Programs written for the .NET Framework execute in a software environment (as contrasted to hardware environment), known as the Common Language Runtime (CLR), an application virtual machine that provides services such as security, memory management, and exception handling. The class library and the CLR together constitute the .NET Framework.

The .NET Framework's Base Class Library provides user interface, data access, database connectivity, cryptography, web application development, numeric algorithms, and network communications. Programmers produce software by combining their own source code with the .NET Framework and other libraries. The .NET Framework is intended to be used by most new applications created for the Windows platform. Microsoft also produces an integrated development environment largely for .NET software called Visual Studio
