    VS.NET Meets The Standard

    It works perfectly fine. I'm reading a C++ book written by an author who only had access to a Unix OS. It is supposed to adhere to the standard (the book). Anyway I've been able to get all the programs thus far to run on VS.NET. I had a little trouble on VC++6 and had to do some work around but not to much. Wow, what a great help interface VS.NET has. It kicks on VC++6. I have both compilers on my OS because VS.NET is a beta, but this thing is fully operational. I might never have to get the final release.
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2

    Well seeing as how it's only a beta version, there are probably some bugs in it you haven't yet found to be a problem. If they added Java support to .NET I might want to use it.

    Rational will sell a Java compiler, and there will be a translator from Java to C# (JUMP).

    I hope the final release is way faster, or else I can
    finish my project in VS6 while VS7 loads the default

    It takes about 15 seconds to register the main menu, than you have to wait another 15 seconds before it is fully operational. But after that, you have total power! And what an interface. The interfaces saves me a hell of a lot of time because I can navigate between open documents so proficiently. I also appreciate the sophisticated help system. There are a lot of features that I don't have a clue about yet. The IDE is loaded with features, including live features.

    ok lets see

    There are a lot of features that I don't have a clue about yet. The IDE is loaded with features, including live features.
    It seems to me that a feature that you cannot use a don't use is not a good feature. I.e. If you'll never use it why pay for it?

    Glad to hear you love .net but, com'on no one wants to hear about things that are awsome but they will never use!
    if a contradiction was contradicted would that contradition contradict the origional crontradiction?

    I'm testing the compiler out and learning how to use the hundreds of new features, waiting for more literature to surface. This is a beta. In 2002 the literature will be everywhere and I will be very proficient with VS.NET. Use your head.

    I asked if I could get the beta and just keep it till I could use it, but someone said that after a while it would not work. So should I order it and have it, or not? (let me guess It's no longer available.)

    You can still get it. You can download it from MS, order a CD,
    or look for any magazine that comes with VS .NET Beta.

    It should not expire. However, the first Version of Beta 2 had
    a bug in it which disabled it after a certain amount of days
    like shareware. One day you would start it, and you are told
    you exceeded the 30 days. What 30 days ?
    But MS fixed that real quick. The latest version should not
    be limited, and if you have a buggy one, go to Software->Add/Remove
    in Windows, select MS.VS.NET and choose 'Check for Service
    releases'. MS has one for download. Just select that, and it
    will be downloaded and installed automatically.

    VS.NET Beta 2 works quite well. I have not noticed any bugs however I'm only working with Win32 console applications. It is a huge compiler. It would take me a year just to test everything out.

    Well, when you use the rest of the system you'll find plenty of them. VS.NET is a nice environment and a great compiler - but I won't use it for production work until it's a lot more stable...

    For instance, the resource editor is bug-ridden, it loads far too slowly, and creating non-UI .NET components kills it (try this: create a class library, derive a class from System.ComponentModel.Component, and compile it. Then add this component to the toolbox, and try to add it to a Windows Form). Not to mention that debugging a mixture of managed and unmanaged C++ is a nightmare, managed C++ classes mix very badly with unmanaged code (__pin is horrible) and the documentation has more holes in it than Swiss cheese.

    Don't get me wrong; I want this compiler - but I want the final release of it.

    VS.NET meets the standard better than *NIX. I have been working from this *NIX book and it is easier to use VS.NET because more library functions are grouped under one library. I don't have to use as many headers as the book dictates. For the most part, all C libraries are under stdafx.h

    The mother does take a while to load though.
