Peter Drayton asks: "...will hiring managers be looking for MC++ skills to kickstart their new $10M BetterMousetrap project?". My guess: likely not. What I think will happen is that developers mostly working with other managed languages (C#), or those with large C++ code bases already, will find themselves in a position that forces them to learn MC++ in order to get the work done. As I said once, I don't think the question is if it will happen, but when will it happen.
