As an outside observer, I detect a clear conspiracy. What?
Well I've seen a rumbling, now and then (see a rumbling because posts must be read) about how C has outlived its usefulness. That's the beginning of the tale. And some even tout that for C++.
Now, of course, you see it. Take 'C'; add a couple more C's (as in ++) and you have your CCC. There is clearly a movement afoot to usurp the position.
It may be, if you post something like PythonPythonPython it will receive better attention.
The only other logical alternative is something like CCC[^].
All that being said, as an outside observer I can only hypothesize. I don't even know how it's done/played/used. Also, by the time I get up in this beloved time zone, someone seems to have done with it whatever is supposed to be done.
Nope, my only problem with 16.5.5 was that when I went to "View -> Other windows" (from the menu at the top) it would crash Visual Studio
It's not something I use a lot, but it happens.
In fact, it happened to me earlier this week, that's why I updated to 16.6 asap.
The problem seems to be fixed now.
Yeah, me too.
I still have one customer who has a WinForms application.
I didn't make it, but I'm maintaining it.
Just last week I wrote a Console app, it just need to check for some files to mail every few minutes and it HAD to run on a local Exchange server.
Other than that it's all web nowadays.
Although I did speak to a potential customer earlier this year who needed software to interface with (label)printers, scanners and possibly other hardware.
A web app isn't going to do that, so it's either WinForms or an alternative.
I don't really see the added value of WPF except that it can do some nice graphical stuff that I don't need, Java is out of the question, and I'm not sure if an alternative like Electron has the same maturity as WinForms.
The guy put everything on hold because of COVID-19, but if he ever decided to continue that project and I get to be the one that writes it, I may go for WinForms.
You'll probably be wanting all the NPM libraries bundled with your update I imagine...
Not everyone has a fast broadband, I am lucky enough to have 100Mbps download but I imagine most of the world has a much much slower download speed.
“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.”
definitely a case of coders riding on the shoartbus.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

As for me after downloading and installing the update, I open Visual Studio and it's still the same version as before. So I have to again download and install, this time it tells me I have to restart my computer.
I've had issues like that on 2 different computers, where I download and install VS and still it's not updated. What I would usually do is redownload the installer.
