After much contemplation in a very dark cave, the wisdom of a Visual Basic forum became, well, at least perceptible to some.

So here it is!

Along with C#, Visual Basic is one of Microsoft's two principal languages for the .NET platform. Today's Visual Basic is not the Dartmouth BASIC you learned in the '70s. Now it is a fully object-oriented language that is actually compiled to .NET byte code, with IDE support through Visual Studio (a fully functional version of which can be downloaded for free, at last).

Bring your comments, questions, criticisms, and praise (if there is any) here.

We are open for business!
