Haha! Tux Monkeys... I'm such a genius. That's way better than Linux Folk.
It's also very good for Web Development if you're going on into that; where the actual bits and pieces are coded in the Page, and the effects are in the Code. Personally I use C#; but for most people Visual Basic is perfect for it.
It is Syntax... that makes no sense. It should be synax - just like it Fitted
should be it Fat
I'm still however all open for what's wrong with the Visual Basic Synax which isn't wrong with say Perl or Python, or indeed Basic itself; useless Languages for people who are a Million Years old and don't want to get into the new fangled C++. In the end the only reason you, and most Linux Programmers don't like Visual Basic is because its a Language run by and for Windows Developers. The Synax is close to C, and close to C++ in every instance other than the declaring of objects which Visual Basic, unlike C++, does for you. That however doesn't make it worse for starting on, it makes it better.
