Don't you think it would be better to wait for .Net 2005? And use the beta for now?


i agree. if you're willing to spend that much you should wait and use the beta until the release.

Is it realy going to be so much better than .net 2003 ?
If yes, in what ways ?

There are still A LOT of programers working with vc++6 :) (i'm not joking)

Because VC++6 is not a .Net language. It doesn't require .Net framework to be installed. But why would you want to buy something old, when something new is coming out soon?

What are the advantages of .NET 2005 (over .NET 2003) ???

I use VB, so some stuff might not be

1) .Net 2003 looks ugly :P
2) Added edit & continue.
3) Much more stable IDE. - My most important point
4) It has some additional tools. (Like code analyzer)
5) Longhorn is supposed to come with 2.0 framework.

I think if you google you can find more detailed info.

But anyway, I'd say you better buy a newer version, after all support for it will more likely continue longer.

Also I've read 2005 has significant advances in the debugger, like easier viewing of the contents of STL containers and stuff.

Irregardless of whichever version you decide on, the specific semantics of the various packages (Enterprise Architect/Developer, Pro, Academic) are very specific in their purpose, even cross-compared. Unless you have a very large team of developers, you have no use for the Enterprise editions. If you are a student, you should find out if your university is a member of the MSDN Academic Alliance and get VS for free/cheap (should be no more than $15). If you aren't a student, Professional is what you are intended to use.

(package role descriptions and cross comparison of the upcoming 2005 release)
