A new survey rates Microsoft's .NET framework the best of the lot for software developers against competitors such as Google and Ruby on Rails.

According to a recent Evans Data survey, Microsoft's .NET was rated the best overall framework by software developers, over competing frameworks from Google and others.

In Evans Data's recently released Users' Choice Survey on Frameworks, the market research company asked developers to rank 10 different attributes of the frameworks they have used.

Microsoft's .NET came out on top, but two Google offerings -- App Engine and Google Web Toolkit (GWT) -- came in just slightly behind Microsoft in overall satisfaction. However, the popular Ruby on Rails web development framework ranked near the bottom in the survey.
