    Is it going to be any good? I know the Win32 programming is good, but with C#?

    BTW, is it c-sharp, or c-pound, or c-number??? Which is it?!?!
    Think out of the box! Open Source rules!

    It will likely be good. It's 1200 pages long. C-sharp.

    The previous books covered the WINAPI32. They were written in C, but many of the specific functions can be used in other languages as long as there are proper Libraries. Hell, I've used some Winapi functions in Delphi.

    The fact that its in C# is not so important.... Its just M$ (The book is M$ Press) using its books to promote itself and its new ventures. I also have Network Programming Windows from M$ and that is a really in depth programming book, but it still finds time to use its final chapter as a "Winsock in VB" tutorial.

    Shameless promotion.....

    This may very well work for every language that runs in the common language runtime. The .NET framework class library is a native API, or so I've heard. This will likely be more useful than Win32.
