what do you mean with abbrevation of .NET? It is not an abbrevation, it's just a name. The dot is part of the name.

NET enabled Microsoft's marketing people to emphasise the "Network"-ing aspect of its technologies, and was also a reaction to the marketing blitz by Sun Microsystems in the late 1990s whose theme was "The network is the computer". The term "Dot-Com" was
synonymous with the Internet that time, and "Dot-NET" was a play on that term.
I don't think it is a bad name at all, the problem was that Microsoft named so many products with the ".Net" nomenclature like .NET My Services and Microsoft .NET Enterprise Servers where the latter had nothing to do with the Internet. It caused so much
confusion. Only later did Microsoft correct things by limiting the .NET name to technologies related to the Managed Runtime Framework.

In webspeak, at least since 1985, .net refers to a generic Top Level Domain that was intended for ISP's.
In Microsoft Speak, .NET refers to their portable programming environment that they stole from the Java EE API Specification.
MS used the concept of a virtual machine to combine all the tools for web - networking to one environment. They grabbed an open-source-like group of class libraries to handle the interface, data access, cryptography and network communications.
Their stolen portion - the one that mirrors Java is the CLR Environment (Common Language Runtime).
While it's been in development for a long time (following Java's success), it was first released in 2002. Version 3.0 is released with Vista, but there's already a 3.5 and a Portable.NET in the works.
There is no abbreviation that i am aware of.
Good luck -
