Microsoft .NET scores major win in retail vertical

Microsoft announced this morning that Target's 1400 retail locations are going to run their systems on Microsoft's .NET Framework.

Microsoft announced this morning that Target's 1400 retail locations are going to run their systems on Microsoft's .NET Framework.  I don't like to make a habit of linking to press releases (the URL wasn't live when I published but should be soon).  But I haven't seen any news items yet.  This is apparently a part of Microsoft's Smarter Retailing Initiative.  According to the release:

....the nation’s second-largest discount general merchandise retailer, will adopt Microsoft® .NET Framework-based technologies within its 1,400 stores in 47 U.S. states. Target will migrate its systems within each store to the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, Windows Server™ 2003 and Microsoft SQL Server™ 2005...

I don't care how you slice it; This is a colossal win for Microsoft.  The Java camp must be seriously smarting today.
