  • VB.NET is actually not that bad. Head and shoulders above VB6 as a matter of fact. It is a shame that when people complain that Perl is a read only language that we JAPH's are quick to respond "Not so" yet do the same to another language.
    • You are so right. That does sound very arrogant on my part. I know that they will simply read it and move on to the next message but I regret sending it now.

      I learned and used VB4. It was bad. Real bad. I've also seen the changes up to VB6. I admit that I have not seen VB.NET yet but I don't plan on it either. Anything that requires a twenty-something megabyte download in order to run a small executable cannot be good.

      Microsoft has left a bad taste in my mouth with the totally unbearable "operating systems" Windows 3.x, NT, 95, 98 and ME. And don't get me started on their other products...

      At home, I currently dual boot between Windows 2000 (it's less painful to use than it's predecessors) and Slackware linux. I'm trying to position myself to make a clean break from Microsoft altogether. This gets easier and easier with each new version of linux.

      So am I still arrogant or simply biased?
