instead of Visual C++
it looks like most major programs are still made in visual c++, looks like vc++ is not going away anytime soon
vc++ will be around a LONG time until c#/.net matures. it took java some 10 years. It wont be an overnight change
I don't see languages like C/C++ disappearing anytime soon. There will always be a need to write initial OS/bootstrap code for new hardware as it comes along, and you really can't do that with 'managed' code. I just can't see how one would write a kernel using C#/java without the ability to manipulate memory and cpu registers directly. I suppose it might be possible if you've got a compiler that will output raw microcode for the hw target, but it still seems like the wrong tool for the job.
Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong..
