As one optimistic person would say, yeah its possible, but in reality, it
probably will not happen for ya. I've been doing .NET development since
Beta 2, and it took me (well it was work constraints) about 8 months. I did
take about 2-3 months off between Web Services & Windows Apps (my 2nd & 3rd
tests), but it still took me that much time to prepare myself.
I would just suggest to continue working towards it, but don't expect to
have it done in 3 months.
