VB sucks. It generates bloaty, stupid, slow and large code. It doesn't support pointers. There is no inline assembler. Unsigned variables above 8-bit are not supported. No 64-bit support. Uses runtime-dlls which are very large. You can't use classes properly. Arrays have stupid slow headers inside them which takes memory. Most calculations are using floating-point code when not needed. Bit operators uses functions instead of op-codes. I can continue forever!!
