Im new to the .net framework and was thinking of learning C++ or C#.

Which do you feel is the best in the long run for overall use and career propects?

C++ is more universal than C#. C# is mainly intended for the .NET frame work but c++ can be used in many different environments. I would learn c++ first then c#.

C# is a Microsoft-only language. C++ is supported by many different compilers (from many different vendors). It is also available for almost every hardware platform and operating system.

C++ has been around much longer than C# and [OPINION WARNING] I suspect it will be around long after C# has faded into obscurity.

It seems that Microsoft didn't want to "play nice" with the Java group. So they decided to replace it with C#.

It's probably good to know how to read C#, but I wouldn't waist my time with it. C++ is probably your best bet. You can also do both windows programming and regular programming with it.:)
