Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
Matthew Kleinwaks said this earlier today and it simply couldn't be more true...

"Does VB give me what I need to write my commercial software: Yes
Does VB work well enough that I get my program out the door on time: Yes
Do I get a paycheck for the work I do with VB: Yes
Has VB.NET gotten better with every release so far: Yes
Is there anything I actually need to do for my job that can not be accomplished in VB: No
 
Those might not be everyone elses answers, but they are mine, and until they change, I won't change either."



I know exactly how you feel, man.
