In Brief

  • The libraries that come with the .NET Framework are large, and cover almost every task programmers are likely to tackle. Using them can save programmers hours or days of work.

  • The same class libraries are used in Visual Basic, C#, and managed C++, but managed C++ can also call some unmanaged libraries that Visual Basic and C# cannot access.

  • The System namespace holds classes for simple common tasks, and a large number of sub-namespaces for slightly less common (but still important) tasks, including string manipulation, IO, and threading.
