    Is there anyone here who use's Borland C++ Builder 6 Enterprise and knows any good tutorial sites to learn C++ for Borland?

    you could see if they have any tutorials at bytamin-C, a website specializing in Borland. Last time I looked they had an active BB. Many of the issues can be worked around with minimal hassle in the console sphere, once you get used to it. If you use VCL to create Windows programs, then it's pretty proprietary, just like with MFC. If you want to do anything beyond what's available in VCL, then you are back to Windows API, which will be the same for BCB or VC.

    I own Visual C++ 6.0 Enterprise Edition which came with Visual Studio 6.0 Enterprise Edition.

    Which would be better to use? Borland or VC.

    I heard Borland had more options then VC and more add-on's.

    Depends. If you want to make programs for commercial purposes then MS products rule by shear strength of numbers. If being in the majority isn't on the top of your priorities then from what I can gather the two seem pretty well matched. You can do console with both. You can do Windows API with both. You can use STL with both. The newer versions both seem to pretty compliant with standards from what I've read. And in the end analysis, whether MFC or VCL is a better propriety product in production of Windows code is a subjective determination as far as I can tell.

    Personally, I love BCB 6. I find the VCL/CLX library extremely efficient for producing user interfaces.

    Which you should get? Guess it depends. What do you want to use it for?

    If you are writing your own programs, think about BCB 6, or wait for BCB 7. Otherwise, yes, it's true industry prefers VC. Also, note both compilers seem to have differing strategies for dealing with cross-platform deployment.

    Personally I wouldn't get VC6. Can you still buy this? It is obsolete and the ANSI C++ standards complience is awful. If you're gonna get an M$ compiler, I believe the latest version of C++ in the .NET studio is much better, although I haven't used it myself yet.
    OS: Windows XP
    Compilers: MinGW (Code::Blocks), BCB 5
