Windows 7 Visual Basic


Visual Basic language is fast and easier way to write programs for Microsoft Windows. It has all the tools available to you which make development quite easier and enjoyable. I had started learning programming through visual basic too. Although many people don't use it much often nowadays.

Yeah I would also not use Visual Basic since it's a bit out dated and not that fast. I would recommend using C# which is a hybrid combination of Visual Basic and C++ and is very fast, but it's also a little bloated. The code bloat isn't really an issue on todays hardware.

Neemobeer, vb and c# run at exactly the same speed. They are both complied to msil (cil) and their feature sets are nearly identical.
