In the case of C++, Visual Studio "Everett" is designed to appeal to the UNIX and Linux communities. Microsoft Visual C++® has been a preferred environment for writing and testing C++ code, due to its first-class editing and debugging capabilities. However, the lack of code portability between Visual C++ and C++ compilers on other platforms has been a hindrance for many UNIX developers. In Visual Studio "Everett" C++ developers will be pleased to find that the key metric for measuring code portability, ANSI/ISO compliance, will be significantly increased. The ANSI/ISO C++ standard is the generally accepted standard for the C++ language, and all C++ compiler vendors measure compatibility against this standard. In Visual Studio "Everett" Visual C++ will be in the upper 90 percent range for ANSI/ISO compatibility (and higher still in "Visual Studio for Yukon"), making it far easier for developers to build applications that target Windows and many UNIX variants. Microsoft expects many developers worldwide using C++ to see this development as an opportunity to try Visual C++ .NET.

Wow.

$29 upgrade to VS.NET 7.1 (as it were) for current VS.NET users and a release that''s sooner rather than later ("roughly concurrent with Windows.NET Server") are two things that I certainly didn''t expect and am overjoyed to see.
