Re: difference between Visual Studio 6 & studio 2003
Visual Studio 6
Visual Studio 6.0 includes the COM-based version of Visual Basic. This version is the basis of Microsoft's development system. It was the last version to include Visual J++, which was removed as part of a settlement with Sun Microsystems that required Microsoft to stop producing programming tools that targeted the Java Virtual Machine.
Visual Studio 2003
It includes an upgrade to the .NET Framework, version 1.1, and is the first release to support for developing programs for mobile devices, using either ASP.NET or the .NET Compact Framework. The Visual C++ compiler's standards-compliance was improved, especially in the area of partial template specialization. Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 is a free version of the same C++ compiler shipped with Visual Studio 2003 without the IDE, though it is no longer available and now superseded by the Express Editions. The internal version number of Visual Studio 2003 is version 7.1 while the file format version is 8.0
Visual Studio 2005
It is the last version available for Windows 2000. Visual Studio 2005's internal version number is 8.0 while the file format version is 9.0. An additional update for Service Pack 1 that offers Windows Vista compatibility was made available. Visual Studio 2005 was upgraded to support all the new features introduced in .NET Framework 2.0, including generics and ASP.NET 2.0. Microsoft also announced Visual Studio Tools for Applications as the successor to Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) and VSA (Visual Studio for Applications).
Visual Studio 2008
Visual Studio 2008 is focused on development of Windows Vista, 2007 Office system, and Web applications. For visual design, a new Windows Presentation Foundation visual designer and a new HTML/CSS editor influenced by Microsoft Expression Web are included. J# is not included. Visual Studio 2008 requires .NET Framework 3.5 and by default configures compiled assemblies to run on .NET Framework 3.5, but it also supports multi-targeting which lets the developers choose which version of the .NET Framework (out of 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, Silverlight CoreCLR or .NET Compact Framework) the assembly runs on.
