Buying and running latest version of Visual Studio

Last Modified: 2018-01-15
I'm interested in using Visual Studio in the field of BIG data and artificial intelligence.

At the moment the latest version of Visual Studio is 2017.
When is the next version due out?
What spec machine is needed for it to run smoothly in terms of processor, RAM and diskspace (and anything else that is relevant).
I found that with the Express edition, I could not use the Streamwriter.  Is this expected?

Microsoft got away from Visual Studio Express a few versions ago.  So unless you need the added bells and whistles Visual Studio Community  vice Professional or Enterprise will probably suit you just fine.
streamwriter is part of .net so you probably miscoded or had a version of express i.e. VS Express for Web  that didn't include it.
