    Tell me one reason why someone would use a different language, just one.
    Who said anything about us not using VB? I've used VB for longer than you have! Heck I learnt VB using VB3! I already know what it's good for and what it's not good for. I don't use C all that much. I use more C++ than anything else. I get the impression you don't know how radically different C++ is from C.

    Wishing all your nonsense were true were so does not make it so.

    You're probably still under the impression that C is real code...

    You do realise that the "latest version" of VB runs on top of the .NET framework right?
    What language do you think the .NET framework is written in?
    Answer: C++ what language is .net written in - Google Search

    Anyway you didn't come here to try and convince others that VB is "the number one mainstream accepted programming language". If you knew that were true then you wouldn't feel the need to come here and tell us that. You're merely after acceptance that you're not crazy. Well I've got some bad news for you...

    Regarding the difference between C and C++ really bears little relevance to me as the language is fairly outdated and incompatible with modern OS's. Unfortunately, I did take several annoying classes in both languages and I can tell you that I am fairly knowledgeable and have even written several libraries for both that are in use by the public today.

    However, since Visual Basic conception it has taken the lead dramatically, namely making languages like Cobalt and Fortran a thing of the past and gradually becoming the sole replacement for C/C++.
    If you look at the sheer brilliance that was put into its ancestor, qBasic, you will find that one can shift easily on to VB with just basic understanding of it's founding language.
    Thanks to VB, spending hours trying to find the right library for simplistic functions that are otherwise time consuming if not impossible to code due to C++'s severe limitations, is no longer an issue.

    Closed.

    Pointless trolling.

    If you do want to promote this POS technology, please do so on another site.
