    While i hate MS, VB is a good thing. Its fast to develop with and you can do pretty powerful stuff in it. I ended up writing all my COM+ objects in it for my last project, before i went to work rational software. (not a programming job)

    I'm also forced to take VB in College. I would rather take VB.NET but they are still teaching VB6. I'm trying to avoid this course but I'll have to take it eventually. I've heard that COM and COM+ are being replaced by .NET components yet there is a way to port COM/COM+ projects.

    I loooovvveee ASM. It's not as hard to learn as some people think, and you can do fairly interesting things with it.

    I'm just looking at what people like hillbillie's doing and I find it really interesting. I know next to nothing about ground level OS workings or design........and ASM would help........one day I will put some work into it

    new choices

    I don't like the Microsoft Visual *'s and I don't feel like buying something just to learn a hobby language.

    I'm narrowing it down now, i'm either going to learn:

    C# (but come to think of it this requires a MSV*, right?)

    8086-asm (may take more time than i initially wanted to spend but it's more useful than the other choices)

    or Delphi, it would put the Pascal I had to learn for Computer Science to some good use i guess.

    Suggestions on best place to learn these/compiler for them?

    C# could be cool to learn as a net language. I have an account and the host has a .NET structure there so I can use it...the only problem is that it has an OLD build of asp.net which is missing some things...

    Learn whatever you can. They all have their uses. VB get a lot
    of criticism here, but I'll tell you what: I wouldn't be surprised if
    more people used VB than any other language. I think that's the
    case. IF you like the Web, then it's Java, Jscript, PHP, Perl, Python.

    No. Wait. Don't hang up!

    i've spent the last couple of weeks trying to learn ASP and VBScript so that i can integrate a web page form with Exchange server and then manipulate the email that comes into the server.

    I have managed to write the web form have got it to create a session to the exchange server and mail my public folder however i am now getting mapi errors when the exchange server event scripting agent kicks in and tries to manipulate that email using vbscript - aaarrrghhh - this though is one very good use of VB as doing this in VC++ would be a major headache

    "Why learn another language it you have the power of" C.

    > (sorry but i hate VB so much, it managed to drain so much of the fun out of programming for me) <
    Me too. It didn't drain the fun out, but it was definitely a bad experience. But, maybe that was a good way to start (and only start). I don't know.

    Who needs another language when you have C++?

    if MS sticks with C#, i will learn it for sure. i think i may go into some CGI too... maybe that way i can write my own bb..

    Don't CGI and Perl work together. Don't know too much about either of them.
