Definitely VC7/.NET. The new IDE is gorgeous, especially the class view enhancements. Oh, and intellisense actually works nowadays.

Visual Studio 7 seems to be more promising for future version of DirectX and Windows. I like the GUI of VS7 better than VS6.


Flamewars don''t make you look smart, but idiot.

The VC7 IDE ( .NET, unmanaged ) has some unnerving bugs. If you don''t need it, keep VC6 around. It''s faster anyway. Get VC8 as soon as you can ( Final Beta on MSDN download, final version announced for spring ), it''s great.

I agree wait for the VS .NET 2003 it should be out sometime in febuary? april? I forget but they say it should be out around the same time as MS Server .NET so it''s not that long of a wait.

Keep in mind that VC 7 runs only on 2000 & XP (I''m not sure off the top of my head if it runs on prior NT versions). So if you''re still running 95, 98, or ME, you''ll have to upgrade or dual-boot to run it.
