VB is for GUI applications, PB is for non-gfx applications, FB, is for Games/GFX intense stuff

I use VB for lots of non-GUI development: command-line utilities, DLLs, NT services, mid-tier logic (applications with a GUI VB6 front end and a middle-tier running under a Telnet/SSH server), CGI programs.  Why the heck would I go use something like PB in the first place?

FB I can see some reason for, but 90% of my reasons there are hopes of portability that VB will never offer.  But I freely admit I have no current interest in gaming and graphics (not much interest out there in graphical front-end MUDs/MOOs anymore, everything's twitch today), so I won't comment on that topic.

But VB gives me quick results, and besides that a rich library of components as as well raw source out there in the world (free and $$) I can reuse.  I also don't have to worry that nobody else can maintain the stuff I leave behind.

He deems everything worthless unless it's somehow involved in making coffe Tongue

We think for tthe price to buy PowerBASIC for the system manual alone, let alone the compiler,is not bad?

You don't like VB6, but it doesn't mean that it is bad. At all.
