I have VS 2003 pro version and .Net1.1 on Dell 9400 (Duo core, Win XP2), writing mostly C# code and do not apply ASP/Java/AJAX...yet.
I heard about AJAX technology and would like to get involve this as a hobby or background, so I be developing application using website.
Meanwhile, I considering upgrading .Net 2.0 perhaps in few weeks. Is there reason I should not do this?.
I would then upgrade the VS 2003 pro to VS 2005 standard, perhaps within 2-3 month.
What impact it would have on development side using standard rather than pro?, will it affects programming development associated with server and website?. (ASP, AJAX, etc). Bearing in mind this is for hobby. Could someone make sense out of remote debugging?, what do I use it for?.
Now I heard about VS 2006 coming out this year, any idea when this happen, Should I hold back, wait and see or buy now and start learning new technology with additional cost of upgrade.
I'm mostly C# geek type, developing application for instrumentation.....at the moment, I'm learning about Design Pattern.
