Topic: C++/CLI

-Collapse +Expand Q2. Can you use native code in a C++/CLI application to increase speed?

Yes, that's one of the big advantages of using C++/CLI over C#. Although you can also call unmanaged code from within C#, support for native objects is built into C++/CLI.

I was telling to a friend how impressed I was with the performance of Paint .NET (a free .NET desktop graphics program), and he remarked the the only reason it could peform so well was because it made extensive use of an unmanaged graphics code library.
