The last time I used VB (version 6), it took me a way too much work
for the same thing I wanted to do in Delphi.
And .NET contain some very scary features for everyone (It actually
execute your code in design time, so if I'll open a form, it will
execute everything in it's functions that regarding the open and
display things, and I can do some nasty things with it).

And it's not portable for other OS's. and IMHO, VB should have died so
long ago in the 80's when it syntax became obsolete.



Yes, I never use VB6. But VB.NET is much more powerful, and programs can be 
created in it in half the time. I don't understand what you mean by "very 
scary features."
