Is there any other language other than VC++ under windows.
I am a VC#.NET user. I am not happy with VC++ 6.0. However I am comfortable with VC++.NET. Are there any libraries supporting VC++.NET. Will there be any performance degrade in case I develop games using VC++.NET instead of VC++ 6.0. Please provide me the required URLs.

You could try Watcom C downloadable from OpenWatcom.org, or Borland C from borland.com (don't know download status).
If you were attracted to VC .NET for debug connectivity, the other compilers long have offered remote debugging support.
If you want to expose internet connectivity in your app, you'd probably want to look at respective libraries for network services (no recommendation to suggest).
