Net framework is used to develop normal desktop/Web application where as compact framework is the one used to develop / run mobile applications. The Compact Framework is also a subset of the .Net framework. If you look at the MSDN documentation for a given framework method, such as this one [http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/d9hw1as6.aspx] which is the member list for the System.Collection.Generic.List class, you will see small logos next to the method/member names. If you see what looks like a small phone icon, that indicates that method is available on the Compact Framework. As an aside, the smaller "X" icon means it is available on the XNA framework, which is targeted for gaming development on the Xbox 360 and Windows.

Who developed the DOTNET?

Microsoft started development on the .NET Framework in the late 1990s originally under the name of Next Generation Windows Services (NGWS). By late 2001 the first beta versions of .NET 1.0 were released.[1] The first version of .NET Framework was released on 13 February 2002, bringing managed code to Windows NT 4.0, 98, 2000, ME and XP. Since the first version, Microsoft has released nine more upgrades for .NET Framework, seven of which have been released along with a new version of Visual Studio. Two of these upgrades, .NET Framework 2.0 and 4.0, have upgraded Common Language Runtime (CLR). New versions of .NET Framework replace older versions when the CLR version is the same. The .NET Framework family also includes two versions for mobile or Embedded device use. A reduced version of the framework, the .NET Compact Framework, is available on Windows CE platforms, including Windows Mobile devices such as smartphones. Additionally, the .NET Micro Framework is targeted at severely resource-constrained devices.

dot net for sure. dotnet is an overall term for C#, VB.Net, C++, J#, ASP.Net, etc. The applications are from web applications down to compact framework. The compact framework (run on Window CE) is the equivalent of J2ME (run on some PDAs only). But if J2SE or J2EE, it would be a wash. If you compare the job opportunities in Canada (the .net) to that of Chicago (the J2ME)... but if you compare Toronto (Window CE) and Chicago (J2ME)...
