    vs 05 or 08

    What do you recommend? Using Visual Studio 2005 or 2008?

    Currently I am only interested in C++ and think sticking to 05 for at least a year would have more point? (because better compatibility?)

    I'd personally suggest VS 2008 only after the first service pack. Until then stick to the proven quality of 2005.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    From what I understand (I still use Visual C++ 2005), the C++ compiler that comes with VS2008 has support for TR1, so you should use that instead if you want to use TR1.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar
