    Well... unless you have a lot of cash AND you need to be able to develop in other languages like VB.NET, C#, or J#, there is no reason to get Visual Studio. I'd just get Visual C++ .NET 2003 - it's like $109 USD, or something close to that. Of cource, the Visual C++ 2005 Express BETA is free, but it has noticeable bugs and missing features.

    Well I actually own VS.NET 2003 thanks to school. So it's not really about the money. I also do a little bit of VB.NET because of a school class so I guess VS.NET 2003 would be the way to go.

    For C++, maybe. I really don't like the compiler errors that I get back from it; they are very criptic to decipher. However, if I'm developing in Java, then it is Eclipse all the way.

    Long live Eclipse!

    go with 2003.net. NOT 2002.net, there are a LOT of differences... as for ASP.net: the AWSEOME thing about it is that you can develop with it with a form editer, much like what you would do with windows form apps. also, you can use ASP.net to make a servie that can push out info for non-web apps... for ecapmple - you can make a XML service that returns a XML document and use it with ANY .net program, ASP.net or not

    also - look into the Deluxe learning editions i meantiond eariler becuse they are CHEAP and come with a book
    (I nkow of a c#,c++ and vb.net one - not sure about j#)

    Dev-C++ For me

    I think its well put together and well supported.

    There is alot of information online to configure different environments to work in Dev-C++. this sort of support is a major bonus.

    Its free, developed for and provided to everyone who wants it using the benifits open source technology provides.

    Its not as cluttered as some other packages, although supports many useful features. The advantage in this is a faster compile than some other packages. Important for those of us still developing on older machines.

    Its also highly customisable,with add on packages available to download and ready to intergrate into the environment with a few clicks. Alot less fuss than moving directorys about for every project.

    When I had to program on Linux I gave Borland C++ BuillderX Personal a try. Although I heard it has some bugs I used it for quite simple assignments and it worked fine for me. In Windows I prefer Visual Studio 2003 to Dev-C++ mainly because of the UI, but Dev-C++ is a close second and if it wasn't for my school being in the MSDNAA program I would surely use Dev.

    Ok, my friend ended up having a copy of Visual Studio.Net 2003 Enterprise Architect from when he was in school. I personally own the VS.NET 2003 Pro. Is it worth the time and the space to install the EA or just go with the Pro?
