I'm thinking about getting one of these programs for doing assignments for school. Should I buy VC++6 or go ahead and get .NET? I won't be needing Visual Basic, C#, or anything else from .NET, just for C++.

How much is the price difference? Have you looked into academic discounts?
I would say go for VS .NET if it isn't too much more, since you might feel you want to learn one of the .NET languages somewhere down the line.
Moreover, the debugger in VS .NET is a lot better than the one in VS 6.0, and it can be a god-send when working on large projects with multiple classes and files.

Don't know the price difference as I did not look up the prices at school yet (I was going to buy it at the school bookstore.) But you make .NET sounds alot better, so I'm leaning towards .NET right now. :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
