Introduction to .NET Framework 3.0
Publisher: Wikibooks 2010
The .NET Framework 3.0 has been created mainly as an extension of .NET 2.0. Hence, most of the features of .NET 2.0 would be workable with .NET 3.0. Migration from .NET 2.0 to .NET 3.0 is easy as it involves only the upgradation of the features and not a complete installation of the .NET 3.0 framework. Applications written and run in .NET 2.0 will still continue to run in .NET 3.0 without affecting the execution of .NET 3.0 specific applications.
