    I haven't used either C++ or C# extensively enough to declare one "better" than the other. I'm sure they all have their use. Part of what I decide is "better" would have to do with how well I know how to use it, ease of use, etc.

    Not every facet of OOP is useful for everyone. I like C#, but when
    asked for the best, my vote goes to C++. There isn't much you
    can't do with C++. C is limited in OOP ways, while C# hides much
    of the internals.

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

    There is no correct answear to that question. It all depends on what you want to do. They all have there justified role to play.

    i m programming games, and most games r not completely OOP based, although a bit of classes don't hurt either.

    C++ fits best into this scenario

    that's y i like c++ best

    Sorry for my ignorance, but could someone fill me in on what C# actually is? Will it compile on a C++ compiler?

    The whole reasonThat I'm doing this, is because I don't know C# either. I just want to know wheter or not it's worth my while learning it. And uh... And who ever added the, "just remember that" thing, good one.

    C++ I still fail to see the point of having everything an object.
    look around you...

    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.

    not at all nv, in fact thanks. I'm not quite sure how to "multi-qoute". I looked in the faq and couldn't find how. Am i supposed to use the full set of tags? i.e. vs. [QOUTE][/QOUTE]?

    Thanks again.

    edited: I guess so, since the first set of tags rendered a qoute, lol.

    C++ for me all the way... asm when needed (rare) ..... C (even rarer). As I understand it to use .NET you dont need to be writing in C#.I've looked into c# a little and to me it looks more like Java than c++ and it doesn't seem to give you the same creative freedom as c++ gives you.It is not muliparadigm.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

You will be able to use .NET on labtops, desktops, databases, web servers, and embedded systems. It is more versitile than C++ because it is going to be better supported. You can apply almost all C++ concepts to C# so that transition will likely be easy. When you get into C# you are dealing with all of .NET, which basically eliminates some systemic weaknesses of the Windows OS. You can read about it now or else later but it is likely an eventality if you use a computer.
    Too bad C++ is being migrated to the .NET framework, eh? There goes your ivory tower argument, buster.
