    Unhappy mfc go bye bye :-(

    I know, all you loved me like a family member but Iíve decided to leave this board for a few months, as my work load increases. The company I work for just laid off our entire staff of C++ programmerís, so that they could hire new Java developers, rather than retrain the C++ developers (IDIOTS!).... so I am swamped with work, while this uber stupid transition takes place. I will be back... eventually.

    So for now I shall say "BYE" to everyone, wait for my triumphant return sometime next year. :-D

    That sucks ass, brother!

    You could always visit in your free time ::sniff::

    I want visitation rights!

    No, just take him away, it'd be easier ::sobs::

    Seriously, that's really a <dripping>brilliant</dripping> move on management's part. Good thing people are so expendable like that! Ahh well, good luck and see you later!

    Remember, some of us here have JAVA knowledge, too

    Hope to hear from you real soon.

    Man, that sucks... if you have stock options, better
    sell them, if they manage all their projects this way,
    they won't last long...

    Java ? Instead of C++ ? They better be a huuge
    cooperation which already has a kind of monopoly,
    because if they make the same decisions as other
    companies (*cough* Oracle*cough*) and they don't
    have a good financial background, they'll go down.
    Look at that Java crap that other companies produce...
    it's slow. Painfully slow. I'm not talking seconds...
    I'm talking about minutes.

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

    .NET will eliminate the need for all programmers to write code in the same language. As long as it's a language supported by the .NET framework than it can use .NET classes and will compile to the very same intermediate langauge and metacode.

    The intermediate language is further interpreted by JIT compilers ,just like Silent Strike noted, as it is being executed. But ofcourse JAVA is not supported by the .NET framework. Apparently it may sue Microsoft over this. There could be come turbulent waters.
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2

    Will .NET support other languages not produced (in some form) by MS? We use some languages here at work that even MS hasn't gotten around to reproducing yet.

    Implant .NET, what does that mean GameGirl? Don't you mean that you are getting implants?

    .NET is a service that offers many incredible things which I am currently reading about. JAVA is owned by Sun Microsystems, and it's not supported therefore it can not use .NET classes.
