    Guys I want to start a programming language and i need your opinion, can u suggest which language should i learn from the following:-
    1 VB.NET
    2 C#.NET
    3 Visual Basic

    Presently i am learning C++ and i have completed 50% of it.
    I have one more question what all should you know to write a simple antivirus program, (or a one which functions like that) from C++.
    Please give reason for your choice.

    You can learn Java first. C# is just ditto copy of Java with some modifications!!!
    Microsoft was too worried about Java's success , so they copied Java's API & created
    C#, which runs only in Windows; Java is cross-platform, it runs in Windows, Solaris,
    Mac OS, Linux, AIX, etc.,

    Re: A bigggggggg!! question?

    @Williams, Here is a big help.
    Learn & master C, then C++ , now JAVA (Java is inherits some parts of C++),
    C# ( It's ditto Java copy with some minor differences!!).
    Also learn & master Oracle RDBMS. That will do!!

    Re: A bigggggggg!! question?

    2 Wiliam,
    Friend as u going to complete C++, u may go for Java as well as .Net the diff between two is Java is platform independent it can be run on any OS such as Win, Linux, Solaris etc. & .Net is only for Window based system both of them have equal scope. The choice is urs.
    __________
    Btw .Net is easy also
    __________
    If ur looking 4 Java then u have to clear the OOPs concept in C++ (Inheritence, Abstract class, Polymorphism & Encapsulation )

    microsoft doesn't support .NET on Linux now, does it? Mono is an open source initiative. But since it is not developed by the promoter of .NET it is always going to stay one step behind.

    Re: A bigggggggg!! question?

    Microsoft may have been worried by the success of JAVA, but there's more to .Net than C# , which does not singularly represent .Net...there's VB.Net and VC++.Net as well :cool:

    Yeah, after MS's intial failure, they moved their strategy to Net finally!! And .Net
    framework was born!! Only the web applications stays in the race with Java & not
    the desktop applications. Since JAVA applications are platform independent.
    Microsoft won't build C# VM's for other platforms; since their biggest money grosser
    is Windows O.S , followed by Office suite. MS wants all to use Windows , so that it
    can make more money!!

    I think you should learn to make a virus before you learn to make an antivirus...
