To my understanding Windows API is used for developing applications for the Windows family of operating systems. It provides many libraries to develop UI or remoting etc, I wanted to know whether the .Net Framework is actually based on the Win API , like
does it sit over the Win API ? Are operations like file handling , networking , creating Win Forms actually achieved by making a call to the Win API internally . Is it all Win API behind the scenes ?
If yes , is .Net something like the MFC.
If no, then how does .Net work ?
