Hey c++ forums,
I know by the title you must be critizeing be by why is he posting this in c++ forums. I know it is ironic i am saying it here but just wanting to know can you do more with either ASP.NET or c++.
Tell me why you choose the answer.I had to ask this question because my friend said ASP.NET was better in fact of more things you could do with it.
I want the truthful answer not just to protect c++ culture.
His argument was really trivial he claimed that ASP.NET had more apps i mean in what way can he think that most games most OS are created in c++ but again most web apps are created by PHP or ASP.NET but you can do c++.net well at least that's what i heard. C++ is more advanced creating most dangerous to most enjoyable application example: dangerous application: Stuxnet virus , one of the Enjoyable application: Fable III , Call of duty.
Asp.net is quite famous in web industry but again c++ is more known.
As Duoas said, language wars are pretty much always a waste of time, and these languages are for wildly different purposes. That makes comparing them extremely difficult. It's like trying to compare an apple to a tomato: they're both fruits, but you likely won't see them both in the same dish. :P
It's pointless to ask which language is better because it's far to subjective. Your friend's opinion likely stems from the fact that .NET has a huge class library giving tons of functionality that isn't available in std c++ (not counting external libs).
