There is an interesting post on VC++ Orcas forum, which I thought I would link to from my blog. Initial question contains a summary of frequently asked questions about VC++ strategy in managed code. The author has expressed several concerns about VC++ approach and feature set. We who work on the product also think about these issues. Bill is VC business manager and he has spent several months by drilling down into details of VC++ business and its implications on technology focus for VC++. He has already replied to the thread with a brief outline of the current strategy for VC++. Take a look, feel free to jump into discussion and share your thoughts. Here is the direct link to the post http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=1032378&SiteID=1.
Also, I have re-arranged tags on my posts a little bit to better represent content I post here. In addition, I had to block comments to posts older than 90 days. I am receiving too much spam comments. Hopefully this is a temporary measure. I may enable it back if spam issue is resolved.
