    .NET goes wavey…

    • 1 Comments
    This is the fancy new .NET logo that will be used at PDC . The old one has been kicking around since about 2000 so it was probably time for a refresh – and it seems in keeping with all of the shiny Silverlight and Mesh logos that have been appearing recently...
