Development Choices
API                   Strengths
Microsoft Win32        Smallest and fastest .exe files and DLLs.
(C / C++)              Lowest memory overhead.
                       Required for device drivers, control panel applets, shell extensions
                       No runtime required; Windows CE .NET is the runtime.
MFC / ATL              Object-oriented. Inheritance, Encapsulation, Polymorphism
(C++)                  Classes support arrays, lists, and simplify data handling.
                       Type safety
                       Complete MFC/ATL source code ships with tools.
                       Good tool support & wizards
.NET Framework         Well-designed programming interface.
(C# and Microsoft      Object-oriented. Inheritance, Encapsulation, Polymorphism
Visual Basic® .NET)    Classes support arrays, lists, hashtables, dictionaries, and stacks.
                       Type safety
                       Namespaces.
                       Automatic garbage collection eliminates memory leaks.
                       MSIL / CIL, provides binary portable of executable (.exe & .dll)
                       Web service clients are quick and easy to write.
                       Great support for handling XML.
