    Thumbs down

    - Just as an update to my comment above, I have since tried to use the newer VS2005. "VB" is even less like BASIC than VS2003 was, and the IDE is, bluntly, miserable (s-l-o-w, given to crashes which lose your work, etc ad nauseam). Not suitable for my work at all.
    - My impression (sans becnhmarks) is that the resulting EXE from VS2005 are so slow and uncertain that I cannot risk my professional rep by delivering them to an actual paying customer (and we are not even talking about the massive .NET 2.0 framework install issues here!).
    - If it is speed and "real" BASIC syntax you want, I would suggest the PowerBASIC product - however, be advised that for Windows programming you will need to become very familiar with Win32 programming techniques, API calls, etc. Not as easy, but MUCH faster than .NET and even much faster than VB6.
    - And the PowerBASIC allows you to freely mix inline Assembler with BASIC to fine tune your apps to a high degree!
