I'm learning how to program in C++. Should I look for Visual C++ V.x or can I use Visual C++.net?
If you want to learn actual C++, not MS Visual C++, don't use Visual C++ at all (or be very careful that you don't use the Visual C++ features that are not ANSI compliant).
Not great on Windows though (IIRC).
Following the previous argument (which I don't think is a good one), gcc has its own set of proprietary extensions you need to avoid.
If you can get Visual Studio for free or at an extreme discount, it does make a nice environment to program in. On the other hand, what you write for gcc will compile on any platform in the world...and you should really be learning Unix while you learn C anyway
