    vs 05 or 08

    What do you recommend? Using Visual Studio 2005 or 2008?

    Currently I am only interested in C++ and think sticking to 05 for at least a year would have more point? (because better compatibility?)

    I'd personally suggest VS 2008 only after the first service pack. Until then stick to the proven quality of 2005.

    From what I understand (I still use Visual C++ 2005), the C++ compiler that comes with VS2008 has support for TR1, so you should use that instead if you want to use TR1.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
