You bring up some very good points. However, I never said there is a reason to not use existing libraries. You seem to think that .NET is the only thing with standard classes. Your wrong, the STL has been around for a very long time and Qt also features TONS of classes to make programming simpler. From strings to vectors to hashes and even directories and filestreams.
Nobody wants to rewrite code. .NET is not the first thing to consider this. I think OO encourages this in general. I agree that C is not good for massive projects, that is why I only use it when I need to do driver programming etc.. A programmer using C++ and the many supported standard / open source libraries can finish a program just as fast as someone using .NET. Besides, someone has to be there to implement technologies like .NET. I guarantee you that .NET was not implemented in VB.
I assume you can predict the future?Quote:
