C++ IDE (alike .NET)

I'm developing applications for Pocket PC using Win CE platform under C++. Currently I'm using eMbedded Visual C++ 4.0 (SP4) but I dislike it for the resemblance with VC++ 6.0 (and its bugs/limitations) and for the fact that I use C++.NET (2003) for regular Windows platforms.

Is the eVC++ 4.0 the 'ultimate' MS solution for WinCE platform? Is there any C++ .NET alike IDE?

eVC is dead. Microsoft has abandoned it. The next version of Visual Studio .NET (code name: Whidbey) will integrate CE development (both native and managed code) into its IDE.

So it seemed to me... Well, I suppose I'll keep on with the eVC until they get out the 2005.

Btw, the .NET 2003 has CE support (for C# and so) but not for C++.

Visual Studio .NET 2003 has CE support but it is for managed code only. Whidbey will have native code support as well.
