I just recently left my last job, and they supported it quite heavily. The applications were extremely old. I avoided it as much as possible, but the little I did learn came down to you could replace the entire system with web services, of one flavor or another, and make life very easy. If I had to explain it to somebody who had never seen it, I would say .Net Remoting was the grandfather of web services, before anybody know what web services were.

One of the many problems that we faced, in working with Remoting, was the code had been built in Visual Studio prior to 2005. That was our guess anyway. We didn't have any licenses for an IDE that would work on it, and it was next to impossible to make changes. The programs that used it were on a 6 months cycle that lasted 3 months. They ran data in March through June and then again in September through November. That left us only 3 months to rewrite everything before the software had to be ran again and it was a fairly large and complex system. In general, dealing with it sucked. I don't know the final outcome but the program was on the board for a modernization to using web services.
