i have a few guesses, is it the syntax of the future? is it optimized for preformance? is it optimized for clarity? is it the language that you can use java with?

It''s simple. No pointers, no malloc, no templates, more basic functions already available to you from microsoft, Longhorn(in all its bad''ness). But since you have asked why is it better im not going to say its shortcomings.

The syntax isn''t hugely different from C/C++/Java.

That''s a pretty meaningless question since C# is a language. You can''t really say a language is optimized for performance, although you could ask whether a C# compiler produces nicely optimized code.

That''s extremely vague, and bordering on meaningless. Use java how?

is there a difference in preformance between c++ and c#,

and, i thought that c.net had a java interface, i was more like wondering if c# was the same language that the c.net compiler uses cause theres a free c# compiler that i might download and jump on the bandwagon.

Doesn''t any C# developed program presently require the client (person running the program) to have the .NET Framework installed presently?

that alone is it''s greatest shortcoming imo.

c++ > c#
