|So I found out that one of my new friends is majoring in code writing. What a relief to actually meet someone in person who knows more than I do on the subject.|
He showed me a little of his programming system including VisualBasic, and I am converted.
In one day of vb I learned ten times more than i did with a whole week of win32. There's no substitute for good tech.
I experienced the same thing when my professor had us learn CAD programs. There was an AutoCad program from the early Nineties and a last year student edition of SolidWorks. It took concentration just to make a square with AutoCad, but i just flew through SolidWorks.
I just want LabView to come out with a cheap universal compiler, then any yeah-what will be able to code whatever on near zero experience.
Speaking of, if anyone knows languages that do for graphics what vb does for api. I still need to look into SFML, give that one a try.

|My recommendation is to use C# over VB. It's a much nicer language, and also runs on .NET. You can also use the excellent XNA framework for building a game, which you can't do with VB.net.|

|VB.Net also runs on .NET.|
But yes, C# is a much nicer language. And supports XNA.
