I think that M$ does'nt plan to support much of VC++ any more due to the new release of C# in it's .NET developement platform. VC++ 6.0 has bugs (like any developement plaform) but, indeed, VC++ is a very good developing platform; better (IMO) than .NET.
The proof it's a good platform is that you (Popolon) are using it!
BTW: have you tested the Visual Studio .NET? -It's one hell of a developement plaform. Just to install it you have to count 3 Gigs of hard disk (if you include the complete MSDN). To be honest, I hardly understand all the improvements (most of them security related) but it's really a pain in the ass just to install besides the fact that you need a new machine just to complie and run the classical "Hello Word".
On the other hand it seems that M$ is jumping in the "free" developer resources. Check this link:
It's a free version of the asp.net developer envoriment. I don't now if it works for C# or what features have been taken off from the VS.NET but it's only 1.3Mb (in fact I think it's only used for ASP developers).
