    I am going to start learning how to build programs and become very fluent in C++. I also decided to use one of the Visual C++ Express Editions because they're free. The problem is that I'm not sure whether to get version 2005 or 2008.

    I'm pretty sure they are more tutorials and books about version 2005, but I think 2008 has more features.

    Any recommendations?

    I just moved all of my company's C++ development projects from VS2005 to VS2008 and found the environments and tools to be very similar. Since the majority of the information in tutorials for VS2005 is still valid for VS2008, I would choose to start with VS2008 rather than having to worry about upgrading to VS2008 later.

    Regards,

    You have your own company? Wow, you must be a millionaire.

    Well what you said makes sense, so I guess version 2008 it is then.

    Thanks for the info.
