"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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

There is difference between VB and VB.NET, but c# is a new language, and it is c#.net

there is no c# existing for other platforms, but there is VB for Visual Studio 6.0. But you cannot see any c#, only in .NET.
