My experience has been (and you'll have to forgive me, folks, because i'm sure it's limited) that rapid application development with all the wysiwyg form editing and such is the primary domain of windows.

I think apple had like, CodeWarrior that may have had some RAD stuff in it but all the open source offerings I've seen are junk.

Visual Studio (which includes VB.net) was and still is the best RAD IDE on the market, just like it was when you left the fold.

I'm pretty disappointed actually. You may want to ditch VB and just move to C#. You can write .NET apps that run anywhere these days - linux, android, wherever but VB is the red headed stepchild of the .NET language family.

all of this is my $0.02.

I'm out of the field like you, but still code a lot.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
