General Development For a few years, I've been working in the real world, I mean the enterprise world, sorry. In every company I've worked for, they offered me the opportunity to learn a lot of new things, or at least that's what they always said in the first meeting before sending me to be just another company programmer. But in fact I've learned some very important things, just not about programming. I had to learn about these things on my own, about the needs of a real company in the real world.

VB = glue

VB (not VB.net) is like Perl for windows: it allows you to use other COMponents easily and to create GUIs for them.

Friends of mine working in Engineering all end up using VB for doing all the not major apps, and I can understand why.

With VB.net MS has pissed off quite a lot of developers (before, no Object Orientation was required, you wouldn't believe how many people don't understand that concept), so the time is right for Gambas or any other VB clone.

Of course that's just my opinion ;)
