.NET in name

Recommended Posts

Hello folks,

I don't want to nag or something, but I'm curious about the .NET word in Paint.NET name, as Microsoft .NET guidelines states the following:


Do not use "Microsoft .NET" or ".NET" in the name of your products, services, or devices.

Or it's enough to name product "Paint.NET" instead of "Paint .NET" to make no violation?


Thank you for your response.

Rick (Paint.NET Developer) has a close association with Microsoft.  I'm sure he has either conformed to the requirements or has explicit permission to use .NET in the name.
