.NET2002 or .NET2003
I am considering buying VS.NET. The price difference between .NET2002 and
.NET2003 is quite big.
Why would anyone buy .NET2003 (arbitrary edition) if .NET2002 (the same edition)
+29 USD upgrade would be much cheaper?
Is there any catch?
Will I miss some features if I opt out for the latter purchase?
Re: .NET2002 or .NET2003
First of all, you want to post technical questions such as this on
As for your question: it all depends on what you intend to do with this IDE. The
2003 edition fixes some bugs that existed in the 2002 version, offers better
ANSI/ISO compliance (much better, actually!), and probably a few more gadgets. So
the extra of $29 seems reasonable to me. However, if you're using this compiler for
a college course of C++ exclusively then there's probably no reason to upgrade it.
