5-0 out of 5 stars It's simple the most powerful software subscription on earth
Are you a serious professional developer that creates software for multiple windows versions or international languages, like me?

Almost 3 years ago, my company bought this subscription for me, and I have to tell you it has helped me to solve so many, many troubles I encounter as a programmer. Like the day some users reported our application was failing when running on a Windows XP Pro + Office XP both in Simplified Chinese... Try to solve that without MSDNU!!

Need to install the latest SQL Server version, or use .NET Architect, or Windows 2003?? Almost *every* software Microsoft sells is now yours, no kidding... It's absolutely unbelievable they sell MSDN Universal at almost the same price of Visual Studio .NET. Buy MSDNU instead, believe me!

I'm always surprised when they add new software (like Virtual PC, Great Plains, Visio, or 64-bits versions of Windows), but it's sad when they stop sending old software (Office 2000, etc). Some of them are still available on subscriber downloads online (like the old MS-DOS 5.0, Windows 3.1 or NT).

Now, I have to tell you: each year you need to pay the renewal fee. It's no joke. But I can't imagine working without this subscription for an entire year.

Also, there are just too many CDs...Buy the DVD version! You'll need to burn a bunch of ISO images for some of the operating systems, but that's just when you need to use them on a PC with no DVD. Some DVDs are bootable, and present a menu for you to select the proper Windows installation.

I *really* like that I can download a special product from the subscriber downloads online website, even before it's released to stores. It's very useful when you bought just the English subscription and now you need to install a Portuguese version of Microsoft Office, for example. Today I'll download the latest Longhorn Community Preview. Yahoo! This makes my programming job so fun.

You can switch to a different language pack during the year, with no problem; or order extra CDs. It's like having Microsoft at your feet..!

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Product, Poor Purchase Experience
I had the same problem as one of the other reviewers, my activation number was already in use, so I had to talk to Microsoft and send it out by a carrier (Top of the box, invoice & subscription card). When they received it, they called me at my office and noticed that I wasnt on the U.S. Even though I was going to receive MSDN in Texas, they told me that if I was to use this product in México I would be violating the license agreement. They didnt even told if there was a similar product for foreign countries... So now, my Subscription belongs to another person in Texas. Bu.

3-0 out of 5 stars "Activation code already being used"
MSDN is probably essential if you develop software for Windows, but I had a problem activating my subscription online. The activation page says my subscription number is currently being used. Be prepared to mail in your activation request (no fax, no web), sending in the activation card, the top of the box, and invoice. After paying over two grand, I still need to wait up to 10 days to start using my subscription. Looks like there is a security problem with the activation numbers. For the cost of the subscription, it should be quicker to activate, notwithstanding the securty issue. After all, Microsoft seems to be letting someone else use my subscription for free--why not me too?

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential tool for any Microsoft developer
If you develop software for Microsoft platform, you can't live without it.

On this package you will get everything, form Windows to Visual Studio, passing by all the servers and productivity applications from Microsoft that are relevant to our work.

Also, with this package you can get things before they hit the shelves. I got Visual Studio .NET 2002 one month before its launch, Windows Server 2003 almost one month too and Visual Studio .NET 2003 more than two weeks before it.

You receive tons of documentation, SDK, samples and help material...

A must have.

5-0 out of 5 stars MSDN's Universal Level Subscription
This is a good product to stay current with Microsoft releases and their developer tools such as Visual Interdev which is now Visual Studio .NET. MSDN Universal level subscription contains all of Microsoft's Operating Systems and programming languages, e.g., Visual Studio .NET, C# (pronouned C Sharp), etc. What others have neglected to point out is that it is now a subscription from Microsoft that runs for one year with monthly updates on either CD-ROM or DVD's. It is more manageable on DVD than CD. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars CODE WARRIOR PROFESSIONAL IS WONDERFUL!!
CodeWarrior for Mac OS, Professional Edition, Release 5 introduces RAD tools for Java including wizards (helpers) for Java applet, application and bean development. The Java RAD is great because it has a graphical layout editor that builds Java program's with a user interface (GUI) using fast, click-and-drop technology.
Release 5 of the Professional editions can be used for Mac OS and CodeWarrior for Windows bundle KL Group's JClass Java Lite components with CodeWarrior. KL Group's JavaBeans added to CodeWarrior gives me versatile tools that enhance the look and functionality of my interfaces, and provides the only truly integrated development tool suite for multiple language and multiple platform development.
WONDERFUL+++++++++++++++

5-0 out of 5 stars do not pass go, do not collect other tools
If you're developing for Macintosh, don't be distracted by comparisons to other Windows compilers. This is the one to get. Command line? Forget it. Slow? It blazes. Cherished by 90+% of professional shrink-wrap developers. Accept no substitutes.

4-0 out of 5 stars The only good one
It's solid, fully supported, and updated. At least it's more finder friendly than MPW. Slow but worthwhile. Worth getting.

1-0 out of 5 stars Well, at least the name sounds good
My experience with codewarrior hasn't been good at all, to say the least. Their so-called standard C++ Refrence Lib has bugs that cripple any programs I've tried to write using it, and their plentiful on-CD documentation could offer no assistance or guidance. If you're in the market for a compiler, my personal advice is to go with Borland, if you don't want your life and production pipeline needlessly complicated. However, I cannot speak for any other languages it supports. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars If you already own the Professional or Commercial version...
While the Visual Studio Professional 6.0 product allows for the development and distribution of powerful front-end single and multi-user applications, particularly with Visual FoxPro and Visual Basic, developers will soon discover that having their own SQL Server (a limited user version is included with the Enterprise edition) is an absolute must! NT Server is a must also, as well highly recommending NT Workstation rather than 95/98, as your development platform. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Visual Studio .NET is a superb, next-generation development tool. At its heart is the .NET Framework, a runtime engine and class library that enables rapid application building for both Windows and Web applications. The runtime engine handles housekeeping tasks, like memory management, while also providing fine-grained security and version awareness. The class library reduces the code needed to build rich applications. Visual Studio .NET also provides a slick visual environment, with features like tabbed and docking windows, dynamic online help, and automatic code completion and hints.

The common runtime is language-neutral so, for example, Visual Basic programmers can use components written in C# and vice versa. Other languages, such as COBOL and FORTRAN, can plug into Visual Studio, and Microsoft provides a version of the Java language called J#.

Overall, Visual Studio .NET is a radical break from the past for Microsoft. C# is an entirely new language, aimed at C and C++ programmers looking for something safer and more productive. Visual Basic .NET is a new twist on the old Microsoft favorite, losing compatibility with earlier versions, but gaining full object orientation as well as access to all the .NET libraries. These two languages, along with J#, have full support for the visual design tools in Visual Studio .NET. Also included is JScript .NET, Microsoft's version of JavaScript, although this comes without a form designer. Visual C++ is similar to earlier versions and is the only compiler included that can build old-style Windows executables. With a compiler switch, it can also target .NET, making it particularly flexible.

Visual Studio .NET has two distinct form designers. Windows Forms are for traditional Windows applications, but managed by the common runtime. Web Forms are ASP.NET pages, which means they run on Web servers and work over the Internet. Microsoft has made designing and coding Windows Forms and Web Forms as similar as possible so that both types of applications can share components and much of the complexity of coding Web applications is kept hidden. Another key feature is Web services, which lets developers create an XML interface for an application so that it can be called across the Web or from any platform or language. XML support generally is strong, with a range of classes for parsing and transforming XML data. There is also a visual designer for XML Schema.

There are a few points against Visual Studio .NET. One is that, like earlier versions, it only creates applications that run on Windows. Web applications are a partial exception, in that they support cross-platform clients, but deployment requires a Windows Web server. Another factor is that, with its multiple compilers and mountains of documentation, Visual Studio .NET eats up gigabytes of disk space, and the IDE tends to be slow with less than around 384 MB RAM. Serious developers will take this in stride, but casual users could have difficulty. Fortunately, the applications created have more modest system requirements, although Windows 95 is not supported. Finally, developers coming from earlier editions face a lot of learning due to radical changes in both Visual Basic and ASP.

Despite these minor issues and a steep learning curve, Visual Studio .NET is an extremely versatile, sophisticated, and capable development tool. --Tim Anderson, Amazon.co.uk ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Great Leap Forward
My apologies to Chairman Mao, but I've been using the beta version of VS.Net for several weeks now, and its advances are impressive. For VB programmers, there is a new, fully object-oriented version of the language that stands on an equal footing with C. For C++ programmers, there is C#, which combines the power of C with the RAD features of VB. It really is possible to knock out a Windows application in a morning! Finally, for Java programmers who are a bit frustrated with the quirks of that language, C# is a Java clone that is easy to learn, that has most of the power that Java left out, and that has a really spectacular IDE. I haven't raved about anything since VB3, but I'm raving about this.

4-0 out of 5 stars .NET - .GET
This studio is leagues beyond the last. Microsoft is easing the burden of developers by simplifying distributed application development using .NET. Sure, for instance, you can go in and manually write the low level COM interface connectors if you prefer to have the "stick shift" control and specific performance attributes etc., or you can rely on the built in functionality of .NET and speed the development process.

It seems that with this platform there is a bit of a learning curve even for the most experienced developers because of the great differences. But the online help is dynamic and useful when you get stuck on something.

Visual Basic is not Visual Basic now. They seemed to have completely renovated the way VB works.

The Common language Runtime (CLR) makes it possible to create solutions by interweaving any of the languages included with the studio. I believe there is a way to import 3rd party or future MS designed languages as well. So if one language is better at a specific task, then you can switch to it.

The integrated development environment (IDE) is meant to maximize developer productivity. In using it, I haven't experienced the contrary. I must mention that I do like the flexibility of working on web applications in .NET. You can use a grid layout like a form builder, or the flow layout like a web page editor.

I noticed a couple of funny things so far, but not worth mentioning. It takes some getting used to, but this is certainly worth it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally... a real IDE for Web developers!
Been using VS.NET since beta 2, and the final version is everything I've ever wanted. I was a former ASP script kiddie, but because of the outstanding object-oriented VB.NET, and even better C#, I can now code Web apps like a "real" developer. I can see Windows programmers asking, "Wait, you mean it wasn't always done that way?"

There are some minor annoyances, like the fact that VS.NET won't use Intellisense when you write code right on an ASP.NET page (come on MS, a code-behind file isn't necessary for three lines of code). It's also not terribly idiot-proof setting up remote debugging.

The greatest thing to me is that SQL Server's Enterprise manager is, in a matter of speaking, integrated into the environment, so you're not alt-tabing to see what the heck your DB looks like.

If you hate the state of Web development, you need this.

5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST IDE Out There
Absolutely fantastic - best programming experience out of anything else I've used. Surely beats the pants of any java IDE.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pure C/C++ programmers will see a mediocre improvement
If you do pure C/C++ programming without COM, VB or C#, you won't see much of an improvement. Code profiling for performance measurements is gone, which was available in MSVC 6 (Microsoft Visual C++ 6). So if you get this software, you should get something like Rational Quantify for performance testing.

C# and .NET are the biggest additions to this environment over previous versions.

Our development environment went through a few upgrade pains. The VS .NET 2003 version fixed many usability problems found in VS .NET 2002. The UI is much better than MSVC 6.0. As with most compiler upgrades, certain C/C++ language features changed, which took us a little time to resolve (e.g. , __FILE__ and a few other things). I recommend a phase in approach when migrating to this new environment. Don't jump into this environment.

If you want to do real C/C++ programming, you need at least the professional edition. The Visual C++ .NET 2003 Standard edition doesn't do optimization, but the professional environment does do optimization. Sadly, you can't get just the C/C++ compiler. Fortunately, there are more optimization options in this compiler, and it has buffer security checks, which I have found useful a couple of times.

The HTML editor doesn't create 100% valid strict HTML 4.01, but it's a better HTML editor than MSVC 6. It also makes it easier to edit basic CSS.

I haven't used all of the nifty features of this environment, but it's a decent improvement over MSVC 6. It's way better than MetroWerks CodeWarrior 5, at least with regards to price (current CodeWarrior version is 8.0, but 5.0 had some stability issues when I used it). I can't compare it very well to Eclipse, since I haven't used it that often (I like Eclipse, which is freely available at http://www.eclipse.org/). CygWin is a little difficult to use at times, but the price is right (free).

Overall I recommend Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 Professional. If you're a casual C/C++ programmer, look elsewhere. This will probably be too pricey for you. If you're a professional programmer, you should consider getting this software. If you're a professional Windows programmer, you need this software because this is the future of Windows programming. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Neutral
If you plan on getting this program go to http://www.bloodshed.net and get a free C++ compiler. Use it to compile DLL files for your games. Not being able to compile with Visual C++ that comes on the CD really makes hard to create you're own effects for games. Learn C++, download the free compiler and learn how to use the free compiler. Not all code will work automatically with Dev-C++ so you need to find you're own work arounds. It comes with the lates compiler which I think is GCC 3.6 (see gcc's website).

2-0 out of 5 stars ok for someone just getting into game design
this is an ok set for people looking to get into game design. you can get the book at your bookstore, and that's really the only thing worth anything in the box, and it's not even that great: just a bunch of anecdotes and short interview sections from some noteworthy people in the field. there's not really much time in any section to go in-depth, and the same is true with the software included. you can't save, or in the case of the visual C++ kit, you can't compile, which means you can write your code and just look at it.
my recomendation is this: if you want to program, get as much math as possible, way beyond calculus 3 (quaternion, non-linear, and matrix algebra are just some of the subjects you'll need), and get lots of good experience in C++, and a degree is the best way to go. if you want to go the art side, draw, draw, draw. go to an art school, and get a degree in the field. the Art Institutes, Savannah College of Art and Design and DigiPen Institute of Technology are just some of the noteworthy schools.
whatever you do, 4 year degrees are better than 2, and make sure it's accredited.

1-0 out of 5 stars It's just DEMOS!
All it comes with are DEMOS. YOu can't even save your own games as a standalone product, for that you have to spend even more money. The book is great, but the rest is ..... You can't even create 3d stuff because you can't save in the 3d editor! If you are considering this product, don't get it, i guarantee you will be disapointed

5-0 out of 5 stars Comment on Game Programming Starter Kit 6.0
I have brought this product and find it very very cheap. This is because the Visual Basic 6.0 Learning Edition it gaves cost about the same as the price i brought the starter kit so actually it is like they gave you free books and free softwares and some free articles from other famous aurthors. The learning curve is not very high so you can easliy get the ropes of it. This is a good starter kit to your future game developing career. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Better in every way
I am a long time user of PaperPort, and I think this verison is by far the best. By basing the entire product on the PDF file format, PaperPort is now one of the most useful products on my machine. The speed and stability issues mentioned in reviews above have all been ironed out in 3 service packs released over the last several months, and the last pack seems to fix all the major issues. Why is this version so godd?

- I can create PDF files from any type of document (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) and combine them right on the PaperPort desktop by right-clicking and stacking.

- I can scan paper documents into PDF, add electronic annotations and then email them to lawyers, accountants, mortgage brokers and all the other people who ask me to fax them things. It is so much faster and reliable to email instead, and with PDF files, I know they can open it on their computer and see it just as I did.

- The new "batch processing" feature lets me clean-up multiple scanned documents at one time and also apply a clean-up operation to all the pages of a single document. This is way better than it was in v8.

These are just a few of the reasons why the new verison is great. As further proof of this, PC Magazine named PaperPort one of the top 100 technologies for 2003 (one of only 6 productivity software titles along with Microsoft Office 2003 and QuickBooks.) Smart Computing put PaperPort on its top 50 list, and there are numerous other great reviews out there as well.

Don't let the few angry people here give you the wrong idea about PaperPort 9. It's great.

1-0 out of 5 stars Scansoft's very low grage product
Whatever we read All that Manufacturer's describtion On this SOFTWARE as an advertisement, does not work fully. It just like a bait. I was using Paperport 8 Deluxe which was almost thousand percent good enough in compare to PaperPort Pro 9 Office. So after I upgraded Paperport Pro 9 Office from Paperport 8 Deluxe, I feel myself a very stupid.

5-0 out of 5 stars PaperPort 9 is a Great Productivity Tool!
PaperPort has changed the way my company does business. With it's scan to PDF and PDF creation abilities we have turned piles of paper credit applications into electronic documents that we can easily email, store and quickly retrieve when needed by using the SimpleSearch feature. My word processors use batch processing to perform tasks on groups of documents to save even more time when reviewing the applications before we send them to their respective card issuers for approval or denial. We used to process about 2,000 applications a day, now with the help of PaperPort we can easily process over 10,000 a day with the same number of staff!

5-0 out of 5 stars New Version of PaperPort is The Best Yet
I have been a dedicated PaperPort user for many years. I was surprised when I went to purchase the product and saw all of these terrible reviews. Since I had such a good experience for so many years I decided to give it a try. ScanSoft offers a 30 day refund policy there was no way I could loose. After using the product for a few weeks, I have found that this new version is the best yet. The software is much easier to use and faster when scanning large batches of documents. I have been using the FormTyper feature and found it very useful for completing paper documnts with information and saving a copy for my records - much easier than completing them by hand and then making a copy. I also have been using the tools to edit pictures from my digital camera.

2-0 out of 5 stars Too Slow by far
I am comparing Paperport 9 to Paperport 8. My major use is to store documents for future viewing and to maintain a record of my trading cards. I have no use for scanning into Adobe for later editing so I use the .max format. I own two scanners - a SCSII A4 scanner and a Parallell port A3 Scanner. Scanning documents is easy, especially with the ability to keep on scanning pages which are automatically stacked into a single file. However saving the document is very slow. Loading documents appears to take far too long. Loading a 200 dpi A4 page takes about 3 seconds with Paperport 8 and about 10 seconds with Paperport 9. Loading a 600 dpi trading card (6cm by 10 cm approx) - in Paperport 8 the picture starts to appear after 3 seconds and completes in steps in about 10 seconds - in Paperport 9 nothing happens for about 30 seconds and then suddenly the whole image appears.
Editing the document in Paperport 9 - enhancing, rotating, straightening - is fast about 2 or 3 times as fast as in 8. But after straightening, all straight lines become jagged - something that didn't happen in Paperport 8.
Saving is again very slow taking about 20 seconds to save a trading card. However try loading an A4 document at 600 dpi. My system hung 3 times (which isn't bad in XP). I gave up. ... Read more

For those interested in a powerhouse of programming and game designingcapabilities, Macmillan's Game Programming Starter Kit 4.0 will be the place tostart your journey. The package is a virtual compendium of resources forcreating your own games and is designed for those with some previous knowledgeof gaming, animation, and C++ programming. The package comes with gamer MarcSaltzman's book, Game Design: Secrets of the Sages, Second Edition,Genesis 3D SDK world generator and editor, Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 IntroductoryEdition, Shadow Realm Model Animator, and Microsoft DirectX 7.0, plus twoe-books from the Sams Teach Yourself series: Visual C++ 6 in 21 Daysand DirectX 7 in 24 Hours.

Starting with characters, you can tinker with Shadow Realm Model Animator'ssamples (a complete soldier plus six geometric simple examples) to understandwhat SRMA has to offer. The brief, straightforward tutorial keeps things inperspective and walks you through your model animation from the early steps(importing a mesh, designing and modifying bones and their orientation andjoints) to the more crucial stages (defining components, model animation, andanimation frames).

Your folks will need a place to interact in, so next you can start working onthe environment with the Genesis world generator and editor. Not for the faintof heart or impatient, this package rivals some of the most complex, and mostcapable, design utilities available. You will begin by gaining an understandingof the terminology and language used by this application; once you're onboard inthat regard, you'll be using its features with abandon. You'll have a plethoraof textures at your fingertips for the variety of shapes and constructionsoffered; you can modify everything from the sky to the fixtures on a wall. Andbest of all, if you're terribly persnickety about the angles of things, degreesof rotation, or vantage points, you'll have modifiable numeric control ofvirtually every aspect of your world.

You'll then turn to the nuts and bolts design of your game with Microsoft'sVisual C++ 6.0 Introductory Edition compiler and DirectX 7.0 developmentlibraries. For the newbie, you'll want to check out the e-books, as well as anyother material on C++ that you can find (we recommend Borland C++ Programming Starter KitDeluxe 5.0. And even when you're done reading the books, you'll find thatboth the compiler and DirectX have extensive online tutorials and help sheets toget you through any rough spots.

For those experienced in the beauties and intricacies of C++, you'll find thiscompiler ready to go and complete with a debugger (for those errant typos andoversights) and a resource editor. And, for those who want to make the most oftheir game (and isn't that all of us?), the DirectX libraries will provide youwith the support for two- and three-dimensional graphics, plus sound andmusic.

To tie it all together, and possibly to get a little inspiration, browse theGame Design: Secrets of the Sages. Here you'll learn about everythingfrom basic design to artificial intelligence, puzzle workings to agents andheadhunters. --Emilie Dirks ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Some usable material, but box doesn't give full info.
I bought this because the ShadowRealm character assembler costs $45 online by itself, so I figured I was getting a good deal - basically a "free" book and other software along with a ShadowRealm license. I was wrong!!

The publishers fail to mention that they've included the shareware version of the product, which doesn't even export files in a format usable by the Genesis SDK!

Further, the Genesis SDK is available online for free, and also comes with a character assembly tool, so the ShadowRealm tool isn't helpful at all.

However, that said, the "kit" does include Visual C++ -- a full version that just doesn't let you redistribute your applications but lets you build them -- and a couple of books in PDF format for learning C++ and DirectX programming. These are great starters, and I've been learning them on my notebook computer in my spare time.

And the book, "Game Design Secrets of the Sages" gives some interesting food for thought on game design approaches, though it gives no programming advice.

Short answer: if you have designed games using Basic or another high level language, and want to move towards more complex game programming, this might be an OK collection. However, if you are buying it just to learn C++, or to learn game programming from scratch, there are much more straightforward books on the subject.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as others claim
Yes, I know it says "Programming 'Starter' Kit" but heck, the box doesn't really say it's for beginners either!

When I bought this product, I knew exactly what I was paying for. Genesis 3D SDK, Visual C++ introductory edition, and Shadow Realm Model Animator seemed like GARBAGE to me (and my assertion was correct), but what really appealed to me were the two PDF books and the "game design" book.

Since I was only familiar with DOS game programming, the PDF books were exactly what I wanted to get myself started into Windows game programming. PDFs has the disadvantage of having to read them off the monitor, but I think it beats having to pay twice as much to get them in print. Besides, when you're programming in front of the computer, it even allows you to copy and paste the context directly to the IDE.

The "Game Design" book was not very informative in game programming but I'm having a great fun reading it - and it even might help you with the game design in the long run.

"Everything you need to program your own games" smells like a false advertisement to me, but then again, if it has Visual C++ included, what CAN'T you make? :) I know that many people who bought this products were disappointed - and I sympathize. The product should have noted that it is for people who have some experience with non-windows programming environment.

In my opinion, Game Programming Starter Kit is not a bad product. I'm quite satisfied with its useful contents.

3-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed!!!
I've had this product for quite some time after it came out which I payed $... to get it. I was very disapointed when it came to the grahical side of this product. In the SRMA program to import a mesh you need another software product that is not included. I mean really who wants buy this under the impression that once buy GPSK 4.0 they are ready to make their own 3d games when really they have to spend another $... getting a program that can make and export meshes before they can even start to make character models.?

1-0 out of 5 stars DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY
Sure the intro version of VC++ is nice, but everything else needs better documentation. Everything you need to create your own games YEAH RIGHT! The Genesis 3D engine need a how to . Actually everthing in the box, except the VC++ and Direct X, needs more documentation on it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Software Here!
Get this software if you want to create games like quake 1 and 2, and doom 1 and 2! If you are an advanced programmer get a better engine like codewarrior! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Visual Studio .NET is a superb, next-generation development tool. At its heart is the .NET Framework, a runtime engine and class library that enables rapid application building for both Windows and Web applications. The runtime engine handles housekeeping, like memory management, while also providing fine-grained security and version awareness. The class library reduces the code needed to build rich applications. Visual Studio .NET also provides a slick visual environment, with features like tabbed and docking windows, dynamic online help, and automatic code completion and hints. The common runtime is language-neutral, so, for example, Visual Basic programmers can use components written in C# and vice versa.

Other languages, such as COBOL and FORTRAN, can plug into Visual Studio, and Microsoft provides a version of the Java language called J#. These two languages, along with J#, have full support for the visual design tools in Visual Studio .NET. Also included is JScript .NET, Microsoft's version of JavaScript, although this comes without a form designer. Visual C++ is more similar to earlier versions, and is the only compiler included that can build old-style Windows executables. With a compiler switch, it can also target .NET, making it particularly flexible.

The Enterprise Developer edition has source-code management with Visual SourceSafe, performance testing, and analysis tools. It also includes developer versions of many of Microsoft's server products, including SQL Server, Commerce Server, Exchange Server, and the Windows 2000 Advanced Server operating system. These are licensed for development only, but even so, it is a rich range of products. Finally, there is the ability to use enterprise templates. New in Visual Studio .NET, these are sophisticated skeleton projects that assist organizations in maintaining consistent best practices. The twist is that, while Enterprise Developer can use these templates, it cannot create them. For that you need the high-end Enterprise Architect.

Overall, Visual Studio .NET is a radical break from the past for Microsoft. C# is an entirely new language, aimed at C and C++ programmers looking for something safer and more productive. Visual Basic .NET is a new twist on the old Microsoft favorite, losing compatibility with earlier versions but gaining full object orientation as well as access to all the .NET libraries.

There are a few points against Visual Studio .NET. One is that, like earlier versions, it only creates applications that run on Windows. Web applications are a partial exception, in that they support cross-platform clients, but deployment requires a Windows Web server. Another factor is, with its multiple compilers and mountains of documentation, Visual Studio .NET eats up gigabytes of disk space, and the IDE tends to be slow with less than around 384 MB RAM. Serious developers will take this in stride, but casual users could have difficulty. Fortunately, the applications created have more modest system requirements, although Windows 95 is not supported. Finally, developers coming from earlier editions face a lot of learning, with radical changes in both Visual Basic and ASP.

Despite these minor issues and a steep learning curve, Visual Studio .NET is an extremely versatile, sophisticated, and capable development tool. --Tim Anderson, Amazon.co.uk ... Read more
