Which do you prefer? I've always prefered C++ up until the release of C#. The IDE seems better - it seems like they spent more time on the C# VS than they did on the C++. Was this on purpose?

Here are some points:
1. C++ also takes a long time to compile while C# doesn't.
2. C# can talk to its parent form, I had to right sendmessage functions in C++.
3. inside a function doesn't always create a dropdown list when typing in namespaces (ie. System::(no list, wtc!). I've noticed this happens when the IDE doesn't realize you are in a function and it has a small delay before it does.
4. C# converts between variable types easier, so it seems
5. More examples and tutorials are for C#. If I need to figure out something I often search for C# code and covert it.

Thats all I have for now. What is everyone elses thoughts?

Some of those points are valid but MS still states that Managed C++ will be the dominant language for the future.
