    c# is a new object oriented language based on .net technology. It looks to be a cross of c++ and java but the final design is still not yet finalised. You can get information on this from microsofts website. ask dean for c# links he prolly has loads by now!
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    What more do you want to know?

    > object oriented language

    From my understanding an OO language is one that encourages you to put code into pieces called "classes". An object is an instantiation of a class. This allows your code to be more reusable and portable.

    I wasn't sure if there were anymore differences. You need to remember I'm a complete n00b .

    In all seriousness, Java's just another programming language, but it happens to be popular because it's aimed at the web and is object-oriented. It's an ugly, slow language, but lots of people seem to love it.

    My CPSC-101 prof talked for great lengths about how it was great because you didn't need to know what was going on in the OS - Java took care of it and you were left in ignorant bliss. My question was "What if you want to know?" That's why you use C, I guess.
