Does the FCL replace the C++ standard library?

I'm trying to teach myself this .NET business and I can't see any mention of
commands like cout, cin or the use of vectors, strings and lists and
suchlike from the std namespace. Do I just forget everything I've learned
about the STL and the standard C++ library and start over with
Console::Write, managed arrays and String etc.?

No,
if you are a C++ developer, you can use both, or either.
It is packaged as "managed extensions" to C++.
So you continue to use C++, but can also take advantage of the extensions.

Now if you are developing in C#, then yes, you use the FCL.
