tell your friend that VC++ is not a language. C++ is a language, you
can do C++ in linux. Also, tell your friend that if he still programs
in VB, there's something wrong with him.
If he's using MFC in C++, then his programs won't work because the M in
MFC doesn't cooperate. Tell him it also won't work on any system that
doesn't have M's hand in it - which means his code will work only on
Windows - ie, he's locking himself in to one vendor.
