    Why VC?

    Hi Everybody,

    I have spent 6 to 8 months in learning VC6.0 even then i don't feel myself to be an expert in VC, On the other hand i have started learning Visual Basic its very easy to learn and simple to work. so i want to know that why we are getting crazy in learning VC? Is it not the wastage of time and energy?

    That depends on the project. At work we use VB about 90% of the time and C++ the other 10%. This is because most of what we develop/maintain are data-warehousing/management systems (payroll, accounting, ship's management, etc.). VB is perfectly suited for these types of apps.

    If we were writing something that is going to be a multimedia app (say for instance a game) VB wouldn't offer the same power and speed that C++ does.

    In the end I'm happy to develop in both. It makes me more valuable to my employer (especially since I'm the only one on the team who knows any C++).
