VB is much simpler, C++ is probably the hardest. You could try Javascript of something to get you into scripting and the plus side is you don't have to keep going back to the compiler and back

Well VB is fairly simple, and is a good introduction. I just took a class on it last year, and it helped me understand a lot.

I agree with David, C++ is not the easiest language to learn especially if you intend to teach it to yourself. The basics are easy but it gets a lot more complicated.

IDK for sure but .NET is some microsoft BS. lol i don't know much about it. And yes C# is a modified C++ language. I think it is meant to be a little simpler but offers a little less functionality as a downside.

Are you positive you want to develop desktop applications? Or would you rather web applications/web sites, if that's the case, start off with HTML and CSS, and work your way to PHP or ASP.
