What is the difference between Visual Studio 6.0 and Visual Studio .NET 2003

Recommended Posts

Quick answer: Get 2003

slightly less short answer:
IDE: several changes - most people I know seem to prefer the new one
C++: better compiler, capability to generate Managed C++
New language, C# to generate Managed code
VB .Net: some would argue also a new language, at new version of VB with a vast amount of differences (for the better IMO)

Agreed, and I had a few problems/bugs with Visual Studio 6, so I decided to get .NET a try and I''m loving .NET, especially C# and improvements to C++.

and by the way, try Visual Assist, it''s a very nice add-on for the IDE with tons of features :
