    Well... if you couldn't afford the last IDE, than it would be a bit strange if you could afford this one. You can get their C# compiler for free. There are enough free IDEs out there, just look into the Links post on top.

    What for ? Do you have customers still using 9x systems ?
    I'm not sure how laws are in your country, but here, there exist laws that force employers to have computers suitable for office work for those who need them. 17" at least, decent speed and so on. If they can afford the hardware, it shouldn't be a big problem to buy an operating system that was sold this century. If you have to operate on a system 7 years old, then you don't need .NET. It cannot handle it's power anyway.

    If you need 95, then indeed .NET is not for you. But you can hardly blame MS for not supporting a 9x product anymore.

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

    Its for school.
    It has to run on the systems they have and 1/2 of them are 95.
    And I don't see why microsoft should drop thier support for windows 95, lots of companies still have a large amount of thier new machines running on it.
    And i just think that the final argument against C# is the way it was devloped. Not by a large group of people, chosen because they were qualified, sitting down and talking about it. Instead it was created by a single company in a drawn out battle of office politics.

    My god, I think you're right. C# was written by the MS marketing department, where people don't know code from carpets. It'll be interesting to see how they go about fooling everybody into adopting this one .

    I think you'll find a fair amount of computer languages have been developed inside corporations (who by their nature seem to get involved in 'office politics') where quite coincidentally qualified people may sit down at some point and talk about it.

    Yes this is all true, MS doesn't know anything about programming and that is why nobody in the world uses their products, they just fooled you with the sticker on you computer when in fact everything in the world is made in China.

    You mean the Republic of China rather than the Peoples Republic of China.

    I think that most people know that C++ was developed by AT&T and that turned out to be a pretty ok language

    It is kinda depressing when I think of it from a swedish standpoint
    C++ main Eng Bjarne Strostrup from Denmark
    C# main Eng Anders Hjelsberg from Norway
    Linux Linus Torvalds

    Yes, they are all sweedish meatballs. But they all work and live in the US now. The best is K & R. They made everything.

    K & R are good. Not sure they did every thing ..I think I read they based C from a code base originating from Ada and a follower named something with B but I can't remeber what the name was.
