If you elitists, you and everyone that replied above this one, think VB1 was bad, you should have tried Apple Basic. I wrote a payroll system in it.

I then moved on to GW-Basic (the GW stands for Gates, William) and did an Inventory, Invoicing and A/R system in that.

I've used VB1 through VB6 since then, over a reasonably successful 42 year career. I still work in both VB6 and C#. Languages are just a tool. If someone shoots himself in the foot with a shotgun while hunting, are you going to blame the shotgun, or the person holding it?

Someday some kids will make fun of the languages you are using, if you are lucky enough to last that long. Throw out the academic Kool-Aid you have obviously swallowed.Suspicious | :suss:
Newer isn't better, just different.
