.NET is useful - it provides a huge library of classes that work in a consistent way, unlike the libraries you had to play with with C / C++, and reduces the memory leak problems endemic to pointer based code written by people who think they know what they are doing ... Laugh | :laugh:

It's a tool - and one that works across multiple platforms with a high degree of "similarity". Try that with a native C compiler, and it becomes a struggle to get anything to work in a short timeframe.

Don't get me wrong, I miss my assembler days (or decades more accurately) - but .NET is here to stay and I'm happy using it.
