Where are you that they are teaching VB? I learnt it in highschool have have not touched it since. Did 2 years of Turning, then in OAC did VB. Took me about a week of class to learn the basics. We did not get into much advanced stuff.
Personaly I rather something where I can code it myself. Just makes me happier, although Java Swing can be a real pain.
The thing VB is great for (I have not used it for this as of yet) is protoyping a design. You can make a layout and let people see it very quickly. They click on around a bit to see where things take them, but nothing actually works. Great for testing, or so they tell us in school (University).

Actually VB is my primary language. Besides Turing, that's the only language they teach at my school. But after the first month or two there's actually very little teaching, just heaps of programs to write... I've read up on C++ but haven't used it very often, unfortunately.
So anyway, if you're looking for a more active VB board maybe I'll stick around there. I'd be happy to offer any help that I can.
