I’ve just downloaded the GoWin eval. I’m from the Linux world and the only Windows programming I’ve done dates to VB6. My customers are predominantly Windows desktop users and there is no web functionality in my product, so I have (tentatively) decided to develop in Visual C# .NET 2.0 as opposed to Java.
Which edition of Visual Studio 2005 is recommended for GoWin - Standard or Professional? Are there GoWin features that will require me to use VS Professional? I know Professional costs much more, but I don’t want any messy upgrades midstream.
Do I need this thing called ASP.NET? It looks like a separate Microsoft product but their website is useless for making any kind of intelligent purchase decision.
Finally, can I eval GoWin using the Visual C# Express edition?
I’d appreciate any answers to the questions, even those questioning my choice of .NET over Java.
