First I programmed in Basic, but that became boring so I eventually did a lot of z80 Assembler. I dabbled with the Commodore-64, then fell in love with the Amiga (my all time favourite computer.) Things were simple back then. There were a handful of languages to pick from. Today, there are literally thousands of languages, with literally hundreds of Basic languages. Things are much more complicated now. But I agree, sometimes simple is better. 'BASIC' should be just that ... basic! It should be simple ... and VB.net is definitely Not simple. It's not that it is a particularly hard language to master, but I find myself spending huge amounts of time just trying to f
