biggest disadvantage is that it will be out of support soon. the advantage of VB.NET is that it is full OOL (Object Oriented Language) witch mean classes objects and inheritance. in personal view i find writing to vb.net much much easy then on vb6. the intellisense is great (not like in C#) . My suggestion go for vb.net

NoBrain, VB6 has been out of support for quite awhile now...

Have you ever drank too much? Did you feel that bloat? Well the bloat of .NET is four times as bad as that. Speed, VB6.0 beats the dickens out of .NET hands down everytime and there are at least a half dozen other reasons that VB6.0 is better than .NET. However with that said, .NET has more than a few advantages over VB6.0...

Know what NoBrain? Just noticed that leyditomomi has highjacked this thread...

it`s my opinion dude :)
and i find it faster to program on. i know i once hated(maybe as strong word) vb.net as much as you. i kinda expect that replay from you :P

about the support i was talking in windows, windows 7 still support vb6 applications but soon or a latter (probably the next windows) it will be not supported

With Microsoft's largest userbase (the companies)
already beeing extremely rectulant to upgrade
their OS for compatibility issues? You would not
believe how manny companies still develop NEW
applications in VB6 these days. I dont believe
so. They'll keep it in support for a long time from
now.

That beeing said... VB6 is outdated, and I got
more than statisfactory results from VB.net.
Reasonable performance is in reach, it takes only
a little harder to not resist to the lazyness.

That also beeing said, why did you PM me, started
2 seperate threads, and used those BLOODY ugly font size?
1 single thread would have gotten my attention just as well.

For the record, VB.NET is superior to Visual Basic 6 in every facet of programming, it's like comparing a Ferrari to a Yugo. VB.NET is an actual OO language, capable of much more than VB6 could ever dream of performing. VB6 is antiquated, and in my opinion not good for anything (hell it's not even supported by Microsoft anymore). It may be an easy visual language for beginners but as far as I'm concerned it has no practical application in the programming world.

If you're learning to program go with VB.NET and avoid VB6 at all costs, as knowing it really isn't going to do you any good
