    what is best c++ or c#

    C++ is more universal than C#. C# is mainly intended for the .NET frame work but c++ can be used in many different environments. I would learn c++ first then c#.

    This is a C++ board... Do you think there may be some bias?

    C# is a Microsoft-only language. C++ is supported by many different compilers (from many different vendors). It is also available for almost every hardware platform and operating system.

    C++ has been around much longer than C# and [OPINION WARNING] I suspect it will be around long after C# has faded into obscurity.

    It seems that Microsoft didn't want to "play nice" with the Java group. So they decided to replace it with C#.

    It's probably good to know how to read C#, but I wouldn't waist my time with it. C++ is probably your best bet. You can also do both windows programming and regular programming with it.
