    Microsoft Opens Up Old Win32 APIs to C# and Rust, More Languages to Come

    I think there are missing some Forum-sections as beta-testing and support

    Just some other interesting lecture

    Chris says: "BASIC is not dead!
    Neither is the WIN32!
    Time to end the myth."


    and what he tells us about the future of win32 is like a resurrection of something that most people thought would die right now directly in front of us while we all look at it. At a second thought: Of course he is right. Either we believe it's dead and suspect some magic working there where we think we would never understand it. Or we recognize again that all those little levers, functions, messages are still working behind the curtain while companies try to put strange and exotic sounding names upon it to spread confusion since they want to sell something as new - who would buy it when he knows it's still the old 32-cylinder-engine, the exhaust bloated up with fancy chrome-plated panels, new styling everywhere - but
    the pot is still just boiling water, the numeric individuals "0" and "1" are still ruling the world and i must agree.
    It's not only a shower of hope, he is right, we should open our eyes and wipe that foggy lenses to see what is laying right there, in front of us, waiting to get picked up again and let's no longer believe in fairytales that are designed by companies - actually commercials - to make us believe we have to buy a new engine, a new software, a new whatever. And we don't understand what for -but they say we need it- now: Fall for it and trash the gold to get ourselves some
    fancy whatever- wrapped in blinky-blinky -a-whole-bunch of a lot not worthy aluminum foil?

    Really?
