I've been using the .Net framework for a few years now. I still haven't really found a use for it...
One of the good things about .Net is the xcopy deployment strategi. It is kind of lost when the gac is used. With the gac your solutions suddently start to depend upon each other a lot more.
Thanks, but no thanks: No more GAC!
If anyone out there has a good use for the gac, please let me know :)
