Sorry, but I disagree. You stated that C# is a challenge for the
smartest of blind game developers." Personally, i found the language
very easy to learn and use. In fact, I got a book on C# from the Safari
web site, read it, and began using the language for private and
professional use with in a month. So the language can't be that hard to
learn. I'm living proof it is not as hard as you claim.
As it happens do you know the difference between C# .NET and Visual
Basic .NET? As it happens both languages are very similar. The only, and
i do mean the only difference, is that C# applications uses c-Style
conventions and the Visual Basic .NET programs uses basic-style
programming. They both use the .NET Framework, classes, namespaces,
objects, etc. To an uninformed observer the languages would appear
completely different, but the difference is a superficial one. Fact of
the matter is if you can learn one you can easily learn the other.
As for learning C++ being too advanced for a beginner for the most part
I agree. The language is fairly advanced, but by learning that language
a programmer will be well equipped to learn other c-style languages such
as C#, Java, perl, etc. Most languages are based upon the C standard,
and thus it is invaluable if a programmer is going to master programming
privately or professionally. If someone is just doing it as a hobby then
learning C/C++ might not be all that important in the scheme of things,
but it helps if you want to become an advanced programmer.

If your not just starting out, I'm sorry, just saying..
