School has started and my computer went down at the wrong time. I have lost lotsa files, particularly some of the win32 programs i learn to write during the holidays. Now, I've managed to keep up with the momentum of school work and I hope to code actively again.
Since i reinstall many applications on my pc, I decided to upgrade to a new c/c++ compiler. I work with win32,c/c++ and opengl and I was previously using VC++ 6.0.
But now, I am wondering should I invest on VC.NET 2003.
I am aware there is VC 2005 beta. What limitation does it have as a beta version? Should I just download and use it for time being till the commercial version is out? Any idea when is it going to be commercially released? Or should I just get VC.NET 2003 instead?
I really welcome any advice given. Thanks alot!
