Well, also, in VB as long as you stay on the paths M$ has set out, it goes 
fast and well. This stops at the moment you are asked to program something 
not on M$ path (i.e. a listbox should type instead of jump to the first 
character when you press a key). Then you walk against a wall of 
difficulty and often even impossibility. In Pascal there is always a 
possibility and it is just as easy as other programming tasks.
