Visual Basic in 'gone good' shock.

A fully typed language, a total rewrite from VB 6.

With the lead programmer as the guy who wrote Delphi, it's fast, very object orientated and just generally splendid. Simple maintainable sytax, a beautiful IDE, I could go on.

Invariably GPL zealots will criticise it due to it coming from Microsoft, and also due it being related to previous VBs. Shame, cause IMHO it's the best language for writing Windows client GUI applications.

(Before anyone criticizes me by saying I find C too hard, believe me, I don't; Perl is my first language.)
