    Probably for the same reason Java hasn't.

    Some of us Newbies are still learning C++ and such so we have to learn these before moving on........

    Yeah, I see that. But I figured the C# forum would be getting more traffic than it currently does.

    I still maintain that C# is as much C or C++ as is Java. Is Cobol CProgramming because it has the letter C in it?

    >Because C sharp sucks.

    Spoken like someone who never used more than one programming language. Go ahead and learn.


    We don't have C# tutorials, because

    a) There are thousands of them when you follow the sticky post containing all the links in the C# board.

    b) C# is so easy, you don't need tutorials once you have VS.NET and C++ knowledge.

    c) No one wrote them, because we are lazy.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Hardly, from what I've learned of C# (most of the core language and WinForms), it's a surprisingly powerful yet compact language. Having worked with the Windows API in C and C++, I can see how C# can easily dominate through ease and speed of development. Try learning the language in full and working with it for a while before saying it sucks.
