    C++ is an Object Oriented programming language. Visual C++ is just a C++ compiler made by Microsoft. It has some additional features like interface design so you don't have to do this by hand.

    C# (C-Sharp) is Microsofts .NET answer to Sun's Java.

    Hope this helps a bit.

    a cracker is like someone breaking into your home without your consent , while the activities of a hacker will not harm anybody instead it will expose the feeble networking.
    Hackers are even employed by companies.Both hacker and a cracker may break into your database but the hacker wouldn't delete important files and documents that would led you to a crash and incurr huge economic losses.

    1) This is the wrong place for this reply

    2)

    From Jargon File (4.3.0, 30 APR 2001) :

    hacker n. [originally, someone who makes furniture with an axe] 1. A
    person who enjoys exploring the details of programmable systems and how
    to stretch their capabilities, as opposed to most users, who prefer to
    learn only the minimum necessary. 2. One who programs enthusiastically
    (even obsessively) or who enjoys programming rather than just theorizing
    about programming. 3. A person capable of appreciating hack value. 4.
    A person who is good at programming quickly. 5. An expert at a
    particular program, or one who frequently does work using it or on it;
    as in `a Unix hacker'. (Definitions 1 through 5 are correlated, and
    people who fit them congregate.) 6. An expert or enthusiast of any kind.
    One might be an astronomy hacker, for example. 7. One who enjoys the
    intellectual challenge of creatively overcoming or circumventing
    limitations. 8. [deprecated] A malicious meddler who tries to discover
    sensitive information by poking around. Hence `password hacker',
    `network hacker'. The correct term for this sense is cracker.

    The term `hacker' also tends to connote membership in the global
    community defined by the net (see the network and Internet address).
    For discussion of some of the basics of this culture, see the How To
    Become A Hacker (http://www.tuxedo.org/~esr/faqs/hacker-howto.html) FAQ.
    It also implies that the person described is seen to subscribe to some
    version of the hacker ethic (see hacker ethic).

    It is better to be described as a hacker by others than to describe
    oneself that way. Hackers consider themselves something of an elite (a
    meritocracy based on ability), though one to which new members are
    gladly welcome. There is thus a certain ego satisfaction to be had in
    identifying yourself as a hacker (but if you claim to be one and are
    not, you'll quickly be labeled bogus). See also geek, wannabee.

    This term seems to have been first adopted as a badge in the 1960s by
    the hacker culture surrounding TMRC and the MIT AI Lab. We have a report
    that it was used in a sense close to this entry's by teenage radio hams
    and electronics tinkerers in the mid-1950s.

    From Jargon File (4.3.0, 30 APR 2001) :

    cracker n. One who breaks security on a system. Coined ca. 1985 by
    hackers in defense against journalistic misuse of hacker (q.v., sense
    8). An earlier attempt to establish `worm' in this sense around 1981-82
    on Usenet was largely a failure.

    Use of both these neologisms reflects a strong revulsion against the
    theft and vandalism perpetrated by cracking rings. While it is expected
    that any real hacker will have done some playful cracking and knows many
    of the basic techniques, anyone past larval stage is expected to have
    outgrown the desire to do so except for immediate, benign, practical
    reasons (for example, if it's necessary to get around some security in
    order to get some work done).

    Thus, there is far less overlap between hackerdom and crackerdom than
    the mundane reader misled by sensationalistic journalism might expect.
    Crackers tend to gather in small, tight-knit, very secretive groups that
    have little overlap with the huge, open poly-culture this lexicon
    describes; though crackers often like to describe _themselves_ as
    hackers, most true hackers consider them a separate and lower form of
    life.

    Ethical considerations aside, hackers figure that anyone who can't
    imagine a more interesting way to play with their computers than
    breaking into someone else's has to be pretty losing. Some other
    reasons crackers are looked down on are discussed in the entries on
    cracking and phreaking. See also samurai, dark-side hacker, and
    hacker ethic. For a portrait of the typical teenage cracker, see
    warez d00dz.
