My view is that the virtual machine-based runtime architecture was the most important reason for creating the .NET platform. Also remember that Microsoft and IBM were the ones who originally developed the SOAP specification, not Sun Microsystems...

the virtual machine-based runtime architecture
This is probably a very basic question but how different is it from the Java Virtual Machine ?

Not much, I believe. Although I have only read one "overview" type of book about the .NET architecture so I'm no expert...

In my opinion .NET is 99% same as Java Platform.
In .NET terminology JVM is called CLR (Common Language Runtime) providing everything we get in JDK with some inbuild webservices support.
I read David Chappell book on .NET and I was amazed to see how much similar .NET is with Java Platform.
