I was really surprised to see the number of people using .NET 2002.
IMHO, VC6 has the more-C++ friendly IDE, especially for resource editing (they should drop the 'Visual' from VC7, there's nothing at all visual about it that I can see).

.NET 2003 has a standard compliant compiler, which is why I switched. I miss the wizard bar, and the 'properties' page really sux.

But .NET 2002 has a non-standard compiler and an annoying IDE -- why does anyone use it? Or are all those users non-C++ programmers?


We got .NET 2002 through an MSDN profesional subscription, which we were forced to drop when business slowed down. We never got around to getting the upgrade CD before MS discontinued it.

Also I've heard storys that many of the spectacular IDE failures in .NET 2002 never got fixed in .NET 2003. These include menu command IDs being replaced with numbers, and IDE getting confused by files with the same names and classes in different projects. It also bothers me that the big bool bug was never fixed. That's the bug in which returning a bool from unmanaged code to managed code would always be converted to true.

With these bugs, which are not only big issues, but look really easy to fix still in .NET 2003, I have to wonder how worth while upgrading would be. New compiler features would be nice, but it's the IDE bug fixes that I really want. Does anyone know if they were fixed in the next .NET?
