Summary: VS2005 is the best tool ever. i'm using it with Windows XP. and my applications are maily Database applications and Graphics. i program in C++ Win32 Applications , Dot Net(also C++). the performance is amazing. I faced only one problem when connecting to Oracle via Instant Client 10. and read more than one line in GetString(); i dont know is this MS or Oracle Bug or my own .
Summary: A must have for any Windows developer. With a full range of languages supported, and ease of use built in, this IDE is king. Even with 2008 (supposedly) coming out soon, this software is still a valuable addition to a developer's repertoire.
Summary: With 2008 coming soon, this topic is a bit late. Still, this is the best IDE for a windows developer. Better support for standard C++ over 2002, the main reason we chose to upgrade is that 2002 would not install on vista which we will probably be forced to use soon.
Pros: Auto complete, powerful libraries, strong binary optimization, easy WYSIWYG GUI development
Summary: As usual, Microsoft has released an unbelievably buggy, product that wants to force you to start all your work from scratch, even after the release of the first service pack. Trying to convert ANY project created with Visual Studio 2003 will result in a myriad of problems:
1) Forms that won't load and present with various cryptic messages with no specifics;
2) Random crashes that cause VS to close mysteriously
3) Applications that will appear to run then at some point...
Summary: Visual Studio 2005 professional edition(full product) is the best tool for the developers. It is recommended for easy, reliable software development. All the essential tools for building a quality product.
Summary: I was impressed by the improvements made in Visual Studio 2005 over its predecessors. I have found C# support to be quite good, and web development sees to be also one of the best ones that I've tried.
However, for Java, C, and C++ development, it is light years behind its competitors. I have had excellent success with Eclipse for these three languages -- although Eclipse has not been that great with C# support.
Summary: I've used development environments as diverse as the LISP environment on dedicated Symbolics machines, Smalltalk, Centerline C++ on Sun,Borland's C++ IDE in the early 90s, and Borland's Delphi. After working extensively in Delphi for years for both Windows and Web applications, I switched to Visual Studio for Web Development in 2003. I can say without a doubt that Visual Studio 2005 is the most productive environment in existence.
Summary: I ordered this software from zuouw, and he informed me that it was actually an academic version. I was unaware of this. I thought from the ad that it was the professional version. This person actually refunded my money. I wish everyone in america upheld the business ethics that zuouw upholds. This was a very pleasant experience for me due to the fact that zuouw is a very ethical human being.
