Actually .NET is a framework like any other. The key is just to understand what a framework is. Essentially, a framework is just a bunch of code that the programmer can call without having to write it explicitly. Ruby on Rails for example is a framework. Before the RoR programmer writes a single line of code, there are already tons of lines of code written for him. That's why RoR can be so fast (if done right) or so slow (if not).
