    Cheers for your advice guys.

    Im currently practiceing in embedded c, and the windows part would be a second string to my bow.

    Generally speaking (very general), with 3 years C/C++ and win32 API experience, is this a desired requirement by most employeers UK, European and American employeers?

    Look foward to your advice

    You could just google it.

    You'd need to get some "papers" to get better jobs

    Some college or university papers.

    Guys and kids

    I was just curious on what papers he would quote. I already have my college and university papers.

    Im not sure that many 14 year olds have that much knowledge. Maybe it rains alot in Estonia.

    Anyway, thanks again for your advice.

    If you want actual programming jobs, I'd say Java/C#/VB for most business applications, C++ for most games.

    You can also look at embedded programming -- e.g. PIC assembly/other microcontrollers. Those are very popular in some areas.
    You ever try a pink golf ball, Wally? Why, the wind shear on a pink ball alone can take the head clean off a 90 pound midget at 300 yards.

    I am using a quite fast computer and some VB, C# and Java applications are damn slow compared to some real applications.
    Dude, you're preaching to the choir... Don't you think I know that, it's just like Java
    Never the less, with C# it's easy to design Windows GUI, which all the custom controlls and things like it.
