I am a new student in programming ,studying C++ now (not VIsual C++).
I have heard that if I start practicing coding in Visual C++ it will make me a lazy coder and so I should stick with Borland C++ for a while. Is that true?
By the way with the release of the final version of VS.Net should I quit learning C++ and migrate to a VS.Net language (for example C#) or I must complete my studies in C++ first?
(I know that the theories in C++ and C# are similar ,but my concern is about choosing an environment to improve my coding skills in practically)
