Please bear with me during this longish post.
I've looked at DBP and now I've looked at the DGSDK (unfortunately can't find a trial download of this). I love OOP, and as I know Java and have used C in the past, C++ should be largely a doddle for me. So my preference is obviously for the DGSDK over DBP.
Because C++ is a more difficult language to learn than basic, there are obviously less developers on this forum. From some of the comments in various threads it seems that perhaps this SDK is destined for the bin. Comments have been made about lack of resources working on upgrades, upgrades stalled because other products have kidnapped the developers etc. Coupled with the lack of numbers using the product, this makes me feel very edgy about spending my money on the SDK and the M$ products that go with it.
So, developers of the SDK...is this a viable, regularly updated product, part of your long term strategic portfolio, and worth buying? You may all laugh out loud that I'm asking the people selling the product this question! But I have an innate trust of developers. If it was marketing I was asking then I wouldn't even bother sending the mail
