Dacta: I worked in a VB shop at my last job. You're going to burn in hell for that comment :-)
In actuality, VB does what it was designed for very well - Rapid application development. If you need a quick demo of a concept it's really simple to whip something up in about 5 minutes. However, go beyond that, and it becomes an ungodly horror. I much preferred Borland's C++ Builder (probably would have liked Delphi too but never got a chance to use it) when forced to do windows coding. Now I don't have to worry about any of that since I have a geek linux job :)
