VS studio 2005 versus VS studio 2003

P: n/a
Hi,

If someone one to learn C# NOW, isn't it a bad idea to be using VS
studio 2003?

Btw, what is the exact difference between C# versus Visual C#?

I would say it is a bad idea. For a beginner it is not good
that several examples found on the net etc. does not work.

C# = Language

Visual C# = IDE / MS implementation / brand name

Yes:

- You can't write C# 2.0 in VS.NET 2003
- VS 2005 is significantly better than VS.NET 2003 in many ways
- VS 2005 Express is free anyway
Btw, what is the exact difference between C# versus Visual C#?
As Arne said, C# is the language, Visual C# is a product (part of
Visual Studio)

It would be a bad idea if one had a choice about it.

Is it possible for VS 2003 sp1 and VS 2005 Express to co-exist on the same
PC?

Question 15 seems to indicate: yes.

There are absolutely no problem with .NET 1.1 and 2.0 on
the same system.
