Well... I don't mean that I hate VS2005. I know there are really a lot of improvements and exciting features...but anyway, i think for pure c++ programmers, that's really a difficult choice, to be pure c++ or CLI, I even don't know whether it's worthy to
learn C++/CLI, how long will it last for? Just like managed c++?? Who knows.
Tell me the reason that why c++ programmers should move from 2003 to 2005? As a matter of fact, there are still few people use VS 2005 or write C++/CLI code...So, I prefer VS 2003 or VS6...that's my choice.
