    Ever here of "Managed Extensions" to C++? That's the .NET version of it, coming up in VS 7. As for QBASIC.net; I have no clue. I didn't know QBASIC was still being developed. As for me, Delphi was ported to .NET even before MS officially ported any of its languages so I'm happy.

    I agree.

    I can't wait to see, ~50 years from now, how drastic changes in cpu architecture will change the way we program and how languages are designed. Hopefully i'll be on a good retirement plan by then; or maybe i'll end being an "old" c# programmer lucky enough to pick up a temp. job working on the y2050 problem.


    50 years,?!?! When i got my first my hands on my first computer about 8 years ago, top of the line was 50mhz with 8 megs of memory, and 3d graphics were just a dream.

    What do you think will happen 10 years down the road, a cheap system might be running at 500 ghz with a monitor built into a set of sun glasses.

    Heh, so true. The fact is, what you expect 50 years from now, we are capable of today. But it is more profitable to increase desktop technology a little bit at a time. Sometimes you see things that shouldn't exist yet though.

    I'm not sure when you turkeys got the idea that I don't like C++. I have yet to hear one true hypothesus regarding me.
    Hypocrite.

    You call us turkeys and then say that we can't judge you?

    Reality check.

    I am a collector of languages. Any language I can find or download. Have not tried C# but eventually will. My vote is for C++ because it is so powerful. I do enjoy assembly, but in desktop applications, there is not much use for it. Besides C++ allows me to use inline asm if I find something that can be done easier or faster in asm.

    Is Borland going to develop a C++ that is designed around .NET? I have nothing against Microsoft, I've just been using Borland for so long and have gotten accustomed to their IDEs. The Developer Studio and VB6 IDEs were probably better than Borland's, but much of it was information overload at first glance.

    The best thing with .NET

    Like they said above, th bext thing about .NET, is that you can have multilanguage programs. This will save A LOT of money in the long run with companies not having to hire people who are all proficient in C++. They could use all sorts of people. And you can specialize even the tiniest part of your program.

    Wink Reminder.

    I just wanted to remind everyone that C# is another one of Microsofts schemes for taking over the market or something. I'm not sure yet, though. But I see very interesting motivations for this event.
    Take heed, ppl
    Yes...YES!!! I did it! Ha ha ha...I'm king of the world...No..No..please-wait-no...!!!!-- This program has performed an illegal operation AND WILL be shut down....Ack-Choking..help...ack..

    Just as a reminder: ANY programming language is created by someone and every creator wants it's product to succeed. Success means dominating the market. Sun would like to, Microsoft tries, and other corporations secretly hope for it. It's the way this world ( or rather capitalism ) works.

    Does that mean the winner is evil ? Are those who try and loose any better just because they lost ?

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Smile misjudgement.

    What i wanted to say is that microsoft is just extending its large array of products. And afterall, why does it need to do so unless it already feels the treath of another rival. No, i did not mean to say that just because there is a winner, the winner must be evil.
    But if we all gave open source a little push from behind ppl would see thebenefits that come from it.
    I mean, isn't microsoft happy, afterall? They should be....


    Thnx for your understanding.

    What understanding?

    Microsoft is ahead, but that does not mean that they should stop making products. They're not after the fact that they're the number one producer of anything computerized, they're after the $$$. They'll do this with the presence of a rival or not.

    VB like

    i think C# looks like a mixture of Visual Basic and Visual C++ to give VB programmers better chances
