Ah, Len, but you responded too quickly. I didn't say "best" either. I too was arguing that VB is nowhere near the most *successful* language. C and SQL are is more Ubiquitous than VB. C, SQL and FORTRAN have produced far more applications than has VB. I don't see how ease of use, mastery and simplicity are ipso facto measures os success, otherwise wouldn't logo be the most successful language in that regard? Actually, in that case, adventure game interfaces would probably be most successful ;-) > All of these are perceptions but if we count money, > a lot more people are making money programming with > VB than C. I *highly* doubt this. I think you're forgetting the huge embedded systems market, which is dominated by C and close to 100% commercial (on the large scale). > If one doesn't use MS products, nevermind.
