I recently bought the Petzold Programming Windows 5th edition. I've made it to chapter 3. But I was just curious because a reviewer on amazon said that in MS Vista, the new windows version, the win API calls are all deprecated and .NET is going to be the new API.
Is this true? or is this guy just full of it (I mean he also didn't like Guild Wars!)? Should I bother learning the win32 API in C if all the functions are going to be pointless in the next windows incarnation?
