From a Web Developer's point of view, and having developed web applications in the .NET framework, I believe Bank One is moving in the right direction. I'm a follower of Microsoft internet technologies and I believe what the .NET has to offer for any business is a tremendous advantage. Given all features available in this new and advanced technology (security, web services, etc, etc), I'm sure Bank One services will improve a lot. Also, a huge %age of the developer market are developing in the .NET framework, therefore a variety of new technological concepts are immediately available for Bank One.

I already have started making arrangements to close my accounts with Bank One. I don't trust Microsoft's .Net, and I believe this will spell disaster for both Bank One and Microsoft.

Plus, I'm happier with my new Credit Union's online banking site. My Credit Union's online site is much faster and doesn't have Microsoft's look and feel to it as Bank One slowly redesigns their online site to match Microsoft's look and feel. I'm not impressed with Bank One's sluggish speed and timeouts as I browse my account on Bank One.

Microsoft, .Net strategy and banking together. I don't think so.
