I guess VB/Basic should have become the popular scripting language & not python, if it was envisioned correctly.
Visual Basic existed before the internet became into view, and python only existed on some freak Linux box.

The makers of VB had an average vision. I think, they focused much on the visual part. That's okay.
"Vision" is marketing-bullshit. VB catered to a lots of hobby-devs, and was used to create a LOT of desktop-applications.

May be the VB*S* should have branched out and gone out to do a lot more things than sticking just with Office automation stuff.
It has. .NET connects everything from Office and your Exchange server to your Database and Azure Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:

The makers & supporters of python had better vision, now the snake rules the planet.
Due to no free version of VB being available and piracy going down. Python was available for free and could be used without having to create a rich GUI. It was not vision, it was luck.
