    Not really. I do know a reasonable amount of C++ now but this is not .NET. I just use .NET beta 2 so I'm a little bit familiar with the compiler. Still I could use a textbook on using this compiler when they are available. The truth is that .NET involves many languages and a lot of programming experience especially with web development and managed languages such as VB and Java.

    If you want to add a new area to the board it should be C# not .NET. .Net pretty much involves everything MS is doing for the moment but is doesnt have anything to do with a programing language. C# is the prefered language for accesing CLR and .NET frame work.

    I know nothing about .NET and I'm kind of curious. How's it different from the other environments? Was is the advantage?

    The compiler itself is paradise. It has so many features. Everyone who uses VC6 knows that MS compiler environments kick ass. VS.NET is significantly nicer than VC6.

    All the languages are able to call the same framework class library, so you do not have to memorize different API's for different programming languages. Than the other main points is that there is a common language runtime. It is a framework designed to help applications created by 'managed' languages. There were some flaws in Windows operating systems regarding issues such as dynamic linked libraries which caused programs to update other programs libraries which is really bad. The CLR fixes that. Not only this but .NET is web centric and makes a programmer focus on building web applications that are able to communicate more efficiently though XML, SOAP, ADO, etc. Way too many things to list.

    Start studying it now because it will likely take you a couple years to learn all that there is offered.

    Well, where would I get .NET?

    You can get Beta 2 with a MSDN subscription or by downloading it.
    I agree with Dean, the IDE is great. Basically the old one with
    more features.

    Beta 2 still is the latest version, I haven't heard of any plans to bring Beta 3.

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

    DOWNLOAD IT????

    how big is it?

    I don't actually think it's smaller than 700 Mb

    my biggest download project ever was DirectX8 SDK (141 Mb), and I had a faster connection back then

    can you order it on a cd?

    and, this MSDN subscription, does it cost?

    yeah, the MSDN subscription costs, and you need Win2k, WinXP, or (I think) WinNT to run the Beta 2. But Beta 1 I heard ran on Win9x

    You can order the cd's/dvd from MS's developer store. There's some info here.

    Bear in mind it's only a beta though, even though it's got some nice features it's buggy and slow.
