Or with me heheheh For years and years I complained about Windows until I touched WINDOWS 2000 and NT. I still do not agree with them, specially I hate the guy who's their CEO (he's not Bill Gates, just a marketing guy that was put as MS President) and all the marketing guys, but you have to admit their developers must be praised.

If you did not grasp it well, Mordor allows FREE downloads of Visual Studio 2005 Beta. I actually downloaded the C# and a new web programming tool and I am very praised with the result, but I think this has a lot to do with Anders Hejlsberg, who was the designer engineer of .NET and C#, who had brought to the programming world an OOP Visual Pascal version named Delphi. Mordor paid him a lot of money and Anders Hejlsberg came up with a new solution that's frankly awesome. Not just regarding programming web sites (now you won't need to use VB as it was required with ASP and you will be able to code in C#) or WINDOWS FORMS (they found a way to say goodbye to the MFC and API just adding a new layer to it named WINDOWS FORMS).
