Hi
I was wondering is it safe to develop comercial applications in .NET now or is it still being tested.

Your opinions would be much appreciated

Thank you rkot2000.
Did you find .NET to be satisfactory?
What problems if any did you have in general?

1.     Learning time
It’s not like going from vb5 to vb6. It’s very different.
2.     Development PC.
I have P3 900 with 256Mb Ram and I am planning to upgrade my PC to
P4 2.0 G and 512 Mb Ram

Thanks rkot2000. It is interesting that it need so much resource...this is worth considering. I have had a look at the .NET code and it is a more like C++ and Java that VB6.

Has anyone else got anycomments to add?

Does anyone know if it is faster at handling numeric calculations than VB6 was?

just keep in mind this :

Visual Basic .NET updates data types for interoperability with other programming languages and the common language runtime.

So
Vb6 Long - Vb.Net - Int
Vb6 String - Vb.Net StringBuilder - Object.


plus. big change with if then

with Vb6 - vb will check a and b
If A=2 and B=3 then

end if

with Vb.Net - vb doesn't check b if a=2 is false.

Keep in mind that anyone who want to use your application developed with .NET has to have the .NET framework installed on their PC.  I recently wrote a small game in unmanaged C++ code.  Even with the runtimes, it still came in at a very downloadable 5MB.  If I had done it in C# or VB.NET I doubt anyone would have bothered.

Thanks 199057i

So it seems that developing an app in .NET is not only heavy on resources but also carries a large overhead when installing.

This is what I need, the developers opinions.
