If your interpretation of my postings is seriously affected by my nationality, then it is more your problem than mine.
No - I remember my first time in Europe. For a while we traveled with a Canadian and a Scotsman. The Canadian would wear a shirt with an USA flag on it and he behaved rather badly. People who saw him blamed "the Americans" - and that is what you're doing. "Default" - a pretty lame excuse at this point: fix it! Or do I detect you are imitating that errant Canadian?

I might actually be from China ("which we call Red China"), which would more or less invalidate every argument I bring forth, wouldn't it?
Politely put, this argument is blithering nonsense.

If CP wants to introdue a "Nationality: unspecified",
Now I don't encourage people to just wave their national flag for some weird ego boost - but this just emphasizes your reluctance to simply correctly identify your location, and now, it seems, you've made it a point of pride, you will resist fixing your own error and come up with absurd excuses and justifications . . . as in this post. Reminds me of kid. "I used the default" == "The dog ate my homework"
Or perhaps it's just a deep seated desire on your part to migrate to North America which you can't quite seem to hide.
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.
