C# (pronounced C-sharp) is a new object oriented language from Microsoft and is derived from C and C++. It also borrows a lot of concepts from Java too including garbage collection. More at http://msdn.microsof...csharpintro.asp

Taken from the Definition on google search: What is C#?

In the same way C# the note is higher than C, C# was designed to overcome the limitations of C. That's why they called it C# (like C++ - the "++" bit means "better than"). In my view, C# is the perfect balance between power and simplicity.

It has a very similar syntax to C/C++, but has access to a range of classes and objects that are part of the .NET Framework, which also provides methods of drawing GUI forms and stuff.
