Hi, I got a great idea for a projects and i was wondering what developement studio suite i should use to make it in. I already decided that its going to be done in C++ and its going to use either COM or .NET. Im fine with iether or.
My question is what dev studio is the best for such a task of designing fully functional application for home use, such as a internet chat/swap program. My choices are limitless because I can get any studio for free from my university. Right now my two top choices are VC++ .NET and Borland C++ Builder 6.
This is going to be an app designed for windows which uses the internet alot as well as a MySQL server which it has to access along with heavy CPU use for algorithmic solutions.
Can anyone provide pros and cons and any suggestions they might have as to wich suite I should invest the time to learn.
