    There are differences between C# for Visual Studio 2003 and C# for Visual Studio 2005, if that's what you mean?

    C# is a language.  It is implemented using the .NET framework.  You can also have VB.NET  The .NET is the same.  The first part is the language you are using to work within the .NET framework.

    These languages have some tools built in to take advantage of various aspects for working with the .NET framework.

    Hope that helps
