    I admit I spelled it incorrect, but I did write '... for (k)now ...'
    Nobody knows when we can expect a future version.

    Everything I see says if you're a VB prog. the transition to VB.NET is
    easier and if you're a C/C++ prog. then C# would be easier to pick up.

    I like you am sorry to see VB(as we know it today) go away. However
    when I first started learning VB I didn't know sqaut about it either and
    I've come a pretty good ways since then. Maybe I can do the same with
    VB.NET. Don't know but It will be fun trying.

    Tim,
    The transition from VB 6 to VB.NET is like learning a new, though closely
    related SPOKEN language...say for instance, Learning Spanish if you already
    speak fluent Portugese. It is NOT like learning a completely un-related
    language - like say, learning Russian if you already speak fluent Chinese(Mandarin)

    In the Spanish-Portugese transition, you must be aware of the differences
    in pronunciation, and syntax, but a great deal of the Vocabulary is very
    close, and clear similarities are quite easily seen. So it is with the VB
    6 to VB.Net transition.

    On the other hand, in the transition from Chinese to Russian is MUCH more
    traumatic - there are almost NO similarites whatsoever.


    VB 6 to VB.Net is clearly MUCH closer to the former case than the latter.

    Re: VB.NET



    Both your points are a very accurate summary.

    However, I've found that the move to VB.NET is nowhere near as difficult
    as starting old VB from scratch.

    Re: VB.NET


    Learning C# and its twin brother VB.NET has become a fun and rewarding experience.
    I have a strong VB6 and Java background. Java is much closer to C# and
    VB.NET then any other language.

    As far as the languages go C# is Java + (enums, delegates, events, structs,
    attributes and a few other things), and VB.NET is C# without ; and {} and
    the silly Dim statement.

    I do wish that MS kept the key words the same for both languages. For example
    C# uses virtual, overrides, and new where VB.NET uses something else. But
    I guess this helps them sell more training which is good for me.

    The API is the big thing to learn, and it is the same for both languages.
    I have found xml serialization, remoting, and web services to be one of
    my best computer experiences to date.

    An interesting analogy.

    Chinese(Mandarin)

    Well with by very brief encounter with VB.NET so far I'm sorry but I'd have
    to say it feels unrelated - definetly a Russian - Chinese kind of feeling.

    For C++ guys and gals out there I believe your analogy is closer to mark but
    for someone who "fiddles" about in VB and whose only other programming
    language skills was (and still is) FORTRAN it looks like I have to make a
    huge investment in time all over again.

    Where I dont for one moment doubt the benifits it will bring me its just
    that I'm not very good at learning spoken langauges and I have to cope with
    3 spoken langauges each day.

    Fortunately VB6 seems to co-exist with .NET happily but I know I have to
    make the transition.

    Nate: I have moved your question to the vb.dotnet.technical group. In the
    future, please post VB.NET technical questions there. Thanks!

    Yes.

    That's a silly thing to say. It's obvious that not everyone agrees with me.
    But I can only show them the door.

    I don't know anything about the affairs of the world, but everything I've
    said in this newsgroup, I've been able to back up. I think that most of what
    we're seeing here is fear of change. When emotion and logic conflict, emotion
    often wins.

    What about readability, maintenance and type safety? I always take that into
    account with my designs. But again, perhaps I value design and technique
    more than others.
