in reply to Visual Basic .net and Perl

I used to have a license for VB 4. It was nothing like the BASIC I grew up using. I used it for maybe six months before I found Perl. I did not even think twice about uninstalling VB. Perl is simply awesome.

At my previous place of employment, I had a license for VB 6 that I used to assist me in porting some VB code (that my predecessor had written) to Perl. Did I mention how awesome Perl is?

It's not that I don't like VB... I simply hate it! Perl however is really quite awesome.

Had I gotten to you prior to your purchase, I would have recommended VC++ .NET. I finally have a license so that I can learn C++ (and learn how to start writing some XS modules). C++ skills can be used on many platforms while VB is well limited to one platform right now. (Mono is working to fix that though.) It's too late for me to convince you not to buy a license for VB .NET so instead I'll just point you to some good resources of .NET info. You can even do .NET with Perl. Isn't Perl awesome?

Updated the ".NET with Perl" link to three links.
