    Just 2 quick questions:
    1) How do people know what language to choose? There are
    so many opinions and marketing spiel on the web, it is
    very hard to understand the core differences and
    benefits/drawbacks of each. How did you learn the
    differences? Or is there an article somewhere on the web
    you could point me to?

    2) If there are not many C++ books being published any
    more for VC++, does this mean effectively VC++ programmers
    must teach themselves things and learn from message posts
    at codeguru.com etc? It seems like you already have to be
    really smart at that language to learn new things through
    self-teaching or peers.

  2. In 02b701c3cd13$aa003980$,
    What's your background? Do you know C++? Java? VB6? VFP?
    What about the books that are already in existence, or are you referring to
    hardcopy of what's in MSDN?
