Avoid the GAC (and Check My Reasoning)


The one where I can only come up with two reasons for using the GAC, the first being very difficult to pull off correctly and the second to happen more and more rarely as we move to SOA and .NET.

This post feels very much like Why do we still need duals?” so if you’ve got a reason for using the GAC that I didn’t list, by all means, let me know!
