    News for Linux users

    Webmaster told me that after this message board reaches 500 posts than it will be promoted to a C# board because by that time the public will have their copies of VS.NET
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2

    Microsoft can shove VS.NET up their arse, and XP for that matter.

    I read today at www.microsoft.com.au that they because the Australian dollar is performing weakly against the USD, they are increase all prices on software, OSs, etc by
    10%!

    We only just had a 10% increase on software last year due to the GST (Goods and Services Tax) our government decided to introduce. Now Microsoft want us to pay 20% more that what we were in 1999.

    How can they justify this? When is enough money enough?

    MODIFIED: got rid of the entire thing...a bit to mean.

    Dean, 2 people want the C# board. two. that hardly constitutes destroying the Linux board which more people really want/need.

    no body uses OS2 anymore but nixing the linux board is a little extreme

    >i dont see why we cant have a Linux AND a C# board.

    me neither...

    and an advertisment board

    maybe this way we would keep all the crap and irrelevant posts away from the real boards

    ugh

    Dean, just learn Win32 API. Not everyone is gonna switch to XP so quickly, and if they do there are certain versions that run on PIII's. Also, let's WAIT and see if VS.NET or C# even catch on. For all you know MS will catch a lot of backlash and keep on the more current path. I've been hearing so much from programmers that they're basically revolting against using VS.NET if they have to. Especially the hard-core VB programmers, because they're redefining the language entirely and dropping their support for the old version. Also, as a windows developer, I think it total CRAP that I'd have to learn C# to keep up with MS's rampage to be the first in the 64-bit market. I think more windows developers have the same feelings (espescially if they use VC++ like I do for most things)

    KEN, you really need some help.

    Go to this link and read this before you say even one more word about .NET:

    dean dean dean!!

    Been there, done that. I've followed all of your little links already, and even done some research on google on my own, and know what? I'm still right!

    BTW: you don't _need_ C# to program win64. You will be able to do it in _any_ language, just like you can now.

    The link in my post above, which I just edited because it was the wrong link at first, does not talk about C#, it describes .NET

    Than you are aware that I am talking about NGWS (Next Generation Windows Services) project. A project who's framework is embedded in all future operating systems starting with WinXP (which I can get of copy of right now if I want). A multi-billion dollar project that was initiated over a six years ago and is just comming into fruitation.

    This makes it all the more apparent that you should spend your time learning the definition of 'C' and 'C++' and understanding software development methodologies before any temporary API's. That way you will have to worry much less about the loss of knowledge because in almost all cases the new technology is an improvement on the old implimentation, yet the methodologies are transferred over to the next generation.


    Waterfall Methodologies
    • assembly
    • procedural


    Rapid Application Development Methodologies
    • object-based
    • object-oriented
    • generic

    So what you are saying is that MS is simply using a development system more aligned with UML to allow easier development?
