    : I heard much from this C#, but actually I still don't know what it is....
    :

    C# is a C like language developed by microsoft. It's a pure object oriented language. It's tied to the .NET platform, and C# is supposed to be better than C++, but I never really try it.

    Here's a code :

    [CODE]
    using System;

    class Hello
    {
    static void Main(){
    {
    Console.WriteLine("Hello!!!");
    }
    }
    [/CODE]

    Tried the language, and I'm simply amazed with it's power and ease of use (compared to C/C++)... If you're a C/C++ programmer, I really suggest you try the language and decide for yourself!

    C# (c-sharp) is a the new "C" like language put out by Microsoft. It actually has a lot of similarities with Java too, and although it does not have the cross-platform support that Java has (yet), it can be more powerful.

    C# was created as part of the .Net framework which is really were the beauty of the new language comes in. The .Net framework gives developers a true object-oriented language to develop windows AND web based applications. One of the great things about .Net is that all code is managed and compiiled down to the CLR (common language runtime) and therefore you can write code in C#, VB.NET, or C++.Net and your classes,functions,subs,etc. will be able to "consume" each other.

    All languages within then .Net framework share the same class libraries which makes working in a RAD environment so much easier. A C# programmer and a VB.NET programmer need not worry about their code being able to interact with each other. Microsoft is allowing for other languages to be broght in the .Net framework. You'll soon find Perl.Net, Fortan.Net, cobol, delphi, etc. all apart of this new framework (I woudn't expect to find Java.Net any time soon though :-)

    Because C# is a new language, it's clean, straightforward, and easy to learn. But again, you get the most out of C# when used with all other components of the .Net framework.

    NOTE: I'm not a MS advocate, I lust really like this new development environment :-)

    So if a person was moving from working primarliy in Unix to doing Windows/Web development would it make more sense to learn C# then C++ ??

    actually, i bought visual studio .NET academic. It comes with

    C++.net, VB.NET, and C#.net.

    Inside is a card saying i'm intitled to a free copy of Visual J#.NET.
    Sorta surprizing microsoft would do that if they dont have to. Unfortunately, i have to wait for my new computer to install it, i'm running 98.

    anyway, thats probably as close to java .net will get under microsoft
