I have downloaded the Visual C++ Express and have been trying out simple programs. I have to say C++/CLI is amazingly simple and elegant compared to MC++. You guys rock!!!
That reminds me to announce (belatedly): Try out the free Express compiler and play around with the new syntax. Make sure you also get the tool refresh so that you get all the latest parts of the syntax now implemented (e.g., putting .NET Framework types on the stack and having them automatically Disposed for you).
Cool stuff. Check it out.
