Manage What?

In Programming on 20 April, 2006 at 9:38 am

Managed code is something coined by Microsoft.  Managed code is code that has its execution managed by .Net Framework Common Language Runtime.  You can think of the .Net Framework as a library of tools that help developers achieve what they want in their program.  Since managed code is compile into intermediate language and not native machine code, the Common Language Runtime (CLR) is able to determine and guarantee what the code is going to do.

Little wonder why Microsoft is trying to push developers in the direction of managed code.  If only Microsoft can enforce that only managed code could be run then all those malicious code will be history.  Well at least I hope that Windows Vista will be a right step forward, not only that the security should be better than Windows XP, Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) also entice developers into managed code.
