    It's a platform in and of itself. The language you use is irrelevant in some regards.

    Just about any language could make use of .NET if they modified the language...
    C++ does support .NET, but the code looks VERY ugly. I'd stick with C# if I were using .NET.

    Actually MS did a pretty good job with C++/CLR. Much better than "Managed C++" where I was constantly having to be paranoid about which pointer was a "real" one and which one was "managed".

    Also: Why C# is not my favorite programming language...

    Points 1-2 is ridiculously stupid by C#, point 3-4 are biased by C++ programmers, and the rest is stupid, as well.
    There's nothing wrong with everything being members, but the ability to create and use stand-alone functions are necessary.
    But point 1-2 unfortunately applies to C++/CLI, as well, due to all dotNet languages being garbage collected.
    Solution? Don't use dotNet.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.
