I Yearn for the day when Visual Studio will not have C++ in it anymore.
The Visual Studio on this machine doesn't have C++ on it because I decided not to install it when I installed VS 2008. (My VS2005 has C++ on it).
OSes will be using managed code in the future.
Way to show how little you know about OSes.
So lets just slowly get rid of C++ and focus on C#.
C++ will stop being used when it is no longer useful. There is no single group that can force people to stop using C++, and it still remains the language of choice for
big applications. I might venture to point out that Vista, MS Office, Visual Studio and IE/Firefox are all written in C/C++, so it's a long time off a "big switch" to .NET languages.
C# is the future, and C++ brings back bad memories , of sleepless nights.
Anyone for year of the C# desktop?
Customers who still use C++ should upgrade to C#. And that is that.
Anyone who still uses C++ or C# should upgrade to Lisp/Perl and that is that. What gives you the right to overrule what someone else has deemed a good language for your product when you clearly know less about their product than you do.
Any one who likes C++ should just stay with VS 6. or previous builds of vs.
And while they're at it, Steve Ballmer should state that Microsoft Office is now going to support documents written only in capitals because it gets the point across, and that IE8 will drop support for CSS and images because they "arn't useful". Seriously,
stop being stupid.
