Hi, I am currently using Visual Studio 6. I am considering purchasing Visual Studio .NET but i am not entirely sure if I should. Any suggestions/recommendations would be appreciated? Thanks

Well, VS.NET 2003 Pro is extremely expensive (around ~$1,000 USD). If you''re not interested in all the tools of VS.NET (mostly support for several languages), I would recommend going with one of the Standard stand-alones. Each goes for about $110 USD, and unlike the Standard edition of previous, they are fully featured (except for items exclusive to Studio). But if you have the money, it''s worth it.

If you are a student and don''t intend to make money off of your programs you can pick up VS.net for 150$. I have only seen it for 150$ but a friend of mine got it through his prof for 20$.

Microsoft is signing many deals with professors/teachers now that allow them to distribute an Academic Edition of VS.NET to some of the students for free. I find nothing wrong with this version.

When is VS.NET 2003 Pro being released? It''ll be such a pain to upgrade.... AGAIN!

yea, it''s out. But I just ordered my upgrade from VS.NET Pro 2002 to Pro 2003 ($29!!) and it''s friggin'' back ordered until May 27th at least!

You might be able to get the full version though. Of course when I ordered the upgrade there was plenty in stock but the next day they were back ordered for a month! I hate M$ sometimes. But I do like the VS.NET IDE.
