RRR! Well I dont like .NET cos it only works on Win2000, XP or NT4.0 The system i use runs Win98 which means il have to spend bout $200 for the upgrade (in my country, thats bout 30,000 bucks). YIKES! To hell with .NET!!! Or maybe il learn only C# Share this post Link to post Share on other sites Advertisement quote: Original post by liquidAir The system i use runs Win98 which means il have to spend bout$200 for the upgrade

MS is obsoleting Win98 soon, so you should do that anyway.

For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can''t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don''t remain stone- written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command or faith a dictum. I am my own God. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us -- Charles Bukowski

Interesting, do you know how they are planning to go about that? There are quite a few of us still using Win98 so how will MS convince companies to drop support for the OS in their applications?

By pointing out that they suck, I imagine.

they won''t offer support for those platforms anymore.

And are you talking about the .NET framework? cause that runs on any system >= windows95.

Visual Studio.NET works only on XP, NT and 2K, but I think (not 100% sure) that the SDK works on anything.

Also, VS.NET isn''t the only solution to creating .NET applications (although it is pretty darn good). Look into this guy:

Sharp Develop

It''s free.

Hi,

Officially M\$ support for Win98 HAS ENDED!
The .NET Framework will run under any Windows (and some Linux ports).
I''m sorry to here that you need to spend 30k on WINDOWS but thats life(and exchange rates ), i''d hate to hear what a computer costs. .NET Umanaged C++ is one the BEST optimizing compilers out there. So don''t hesitate to spend the money.

.NET works on windows 98 etc but not win 95. If you go and read the info on the download for the .NET framework then you would know. The only thing it does not support is some server stuff.

go look at the SDK for .nET
