Post your question to a community of 469,347 developers. It's quick & easy.

ddk, Longhorn, and C#??

Quick Q's:

Will the driver development for longhorn still be in C ?
Can it be done in C#. (I like the frameworks too much :) )

I heard a rumer that LongHorn was programed with c#,
so I had a hope that driver development wouldnt be such
a daunting task. (*sigh* One could always hope.)

Nope, it's the C way or the highway I'm afraid.
I think there would be serious issues introducing managed code into a
driver anyway, both security and performance.

Yes, C/C++.

No, it can't. Note that the framework is of no use in driver development, imagine C# without
the framework....

No, it's all C/C++.

Driver development can be a daunting task, but not because of the language.
