Am I to understand now that MS is forcing us to use .NET to do mail, internet, messaging, etc, etc?
I look up MAPI, Internet sessions, database support, etc, etc, and it all leads to .NET.
It seems as though the entire Platform SDK besides .NET has been deprecated.
This is not a good thing IMO.
In order to use .NET I must use CLR which I'm trying to avoid.
EDIT: Ok I gave in to the big boys. Have a book coming in the mail all about .NET and CLI. Somehow I'm not quite as excited about this one as my other books. But, if I want my skills to be 'marketable', I have to stay up to date and unfortunately that means C++/CLI and .NET.
