If you are good at C++, you should not have forgot it so fast.
On the other hand, even you spend 5 more years on VC++,
your VC level won't improve much.
In IT field, one has to learn and learn. Only new technologies
can bring you a good pay. My boss hired two VC++ guys from China and both of them are doing Java now. If you have only one skill--VC++ or VB, you will be in trouble sooner or later.
Of course, I don't suggest you learn Java.
I cannot assure you that C# will be hot. But I personally think
it will be hot because it is a Microsoft product. Things are going so fast. Smart guys always are early birds. As I learned JSP and EJB, my chief architect thought JSP and EJB are brouhaha
and advised me to learn ASP becasue ASP was very, very hot at that time. But it turned out he was wrong.
I understand C++ is very difficult to play. If a 6-person team has one C++ novice, the whole project is at high risk. If you don't have confidence in VC++, I suggest you forget about it and learn Java. More and more C++ programmers are moving from C++ to Java.
We need to learn, learn and learn until we quit.
