    Prelude what compile do you use?

    I use Borland C++ 5.02, and it is getting quite old and I am thinking about changing my compiler.
    What do you use Prelude?

    I use Microsoft Visual C++ 6. But I have a cheapy copy of Borland somewhere for compiling code that uses textcolor and the like liberally. Though it doesn't do much good lost, does it?

    Have you thought about uppgrading to .NET? I am still debating if I should just get the C++ and C# or drain my account and get VS.NET. Until I have made up my mind I will just wait. Haven't seen anything that I know how to do that can't be done with VS6 and .NET SDK. Lately I been using KDevelop and like it more and more.

    As I see it VS.NET is similar enough to VS 6 that there's really no need to upgrade for very nearly $2k. The only reason I'd upgrade is to get VC#, but the SDK suits me just fine right now.

    VS.net

    My Visual Basic teacher told me she was looking into getting VS.net, she said something about it being compatible with 20 languages or something?? Other than that i am completely in the dark about VS.net, could someone elaborate on why it is supposed to be good, or point me to an online resource?

    I have access to VS6 so i think I will just use that instead of the old version of borland.

    Heres a link to Visual Studio homepage, it will have everything you want to know (other than student priceing). http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/

    Post .NET

    If you want .Net C++, C#, and VB you can just download the .Net SDK from microsoft and you can get Visual C++ to work with the C++.Net you can get an editor like Sharpdevelop for C# and find some editor for VB. It is all free and if you want to design GUIs visually get WinDes.exe it came with .Net SDK version 1 but not with version 2
