Hehehe, I've got VB6 and .NET, but VB4 is a little easier to use in many
cases, and it tends to put out smaller code. Not to mention which,
nobody has written a decompiler for it (yet?)

As for .NET, after the 4 hour install, I realized something: It sucks for
what I do! And I really really dislike having to include a 28+ meg runtime.
Call it a 'framework' if you will, it's still 28+ meg I have to include.

And yes, I DO still have the original CD/Case for VB4.  :) Copyright
1987-1995.  I'm wondering if another 2 years it'll be considered appropriate
for a topic on the rescue list? (snicker)
