    I've no idea what to titling this!?

    Hi everybody

    I've just start to programming in .Net framework and this question came to me:

    What kind of programs are written by WIN32 projects?

    any answer would be appreciated.

    thanks for answers.
    Anything you want...
    Almost every Windows application and service are written in it
    it seems every windows applications using form application programming

    i don't get ""every"" in ""every windows application and service"" ,like what?

    and for ""any thing you want..."" I thought console applications are belong to past ,why should i write a program with it (Note that i'm very comfortable to write console applications, but i don't get what's special about win32 can anyone can clear that for me?)

    Are you going to be using C#?
    C++.Net is taught in our university ; but there is a huge question mark upon my Brain
    "why there is no desire on C++.Net ?"
    i can't find any source for it , it seems no one like to programming in C++ form applications,Why?

    and Hack, why you ask that?

    Most games have c++ portions of their code, esp the engine.

    Dont think of commandline as what you do in class. Think of any program that has no interface at all, such as a device driver, or the operating system processes (open task manager and look at all the processes running that have no interface!). Or think of tools, such as 7zip which has a commandline version, or built in OS tools like grep or file compare or xcopy. They usually use commandline flags and not a silly menu (press 1 to timewarp back to 1982, press 3 to exit). The menu stuff is mostly dead.

    But many a windowed (FORMS are GUI programs, or windowed programs, or whatever term you like for these things) program is also in C++. I think the newish google chrome browser is in c++, or partially so. Most fullscreen games are at least partially c++. Most device drivers are as well, as are most hardware libraries (to program a chip for example is usually C or C++).

    Too much to list, but many, many modern programs are at least partially in c++.
