Wondering if MFC is dead? What's the new one called? Forms? Where can I start? Or is the the MFC still the standard? Thanks.

Yeah, MFC is pretty much dead. Most people have migrated to C# WinForms.

WinForms? Never heard of that. Is it a C++ library?

If it's the C#/.NET thing, then don't think of convincing me!

WinForms is the new windowing toolkit from Microsoft for use with the .NET framework. You cannot separate it from .NET itself but it is useable from C#, C++, VB.NET and pretty much any language that can access the .NET framework.

If you have a decent reason to claim that nobody can convince you to use .NET, then there are alternate decent toolkits out there that you could use for basic windowing: Qt and wxWindows come to mind. They're nice because they're cross-platform, but in my opinion not really as nice to work with as .NET WinForms...

I only wish MFC was dead. I'm using it at work right now. It ain't pretty, but it is functional. As far as native C++ (non .NET) windowing work goes, I think it's still Microsoft's only real offering.
