Microsoft As expected, Microsoft has released Beta 1 of its Visual Studio 2010 tool set along with the first beta of the NET Framework 4.0. The software represents the next major version of Microsoft's flag ship software development environment.

vb6

IMHO as a "old school" developer, vb6 was the last true version of vb that there is. MS totally botched it when they re-did the whole language to be more C like.

the purpose of vb was to have a RAD language, and with it being so C like, it is not.

and sadly enough, i do speak from experience. i still use vb6 to this day, even after a half a year of trying to beat .net in to my head.
