What is the difference between standard C++ and the "managed" C++ that you can write in Visual Studio using .NET components?

It depends on which type of jobs you're getting into. From my limited knowledge, standard C++ is what we know it as C++. The managed C++ is very much like a source code interface that you write to generate Microsoft byte code which is compatible with VB and C#. This way, a development teams can be made up of people of different language skills. The byte codes all call the same library functions for compatibility. The downside is that "managed C++" does not run at the same speed as we expect of standard C++. I do not think you can use pointers if you wanted to. (Most don't) Someone more familiar with this aspect please contribute or correct.

I think C# is better than managed C++ when developing over .NET
