Abstract

While the Windows applications created in Visual Studio.NET look very similar to those created using earlier versions of Visual Studio, a great deal has changed behind the scenes. The main benefit that Visual Studio.NET brings to forms-based applications is the equal footing that developers are put on regardless of the language being used. The underlying classes used are now the same whether one is developing inVB.NET, C#, C++.NET, or any other.NET language. This is a huge step forward from Visual Studio 6, where Visual Basic was dominant in many market sectors in comparison to Visual C++, and developers were faced with many intricacies involved in creating rich applications using Visual C++.
