Great Reasons Not To Learn VB.NET - PART 1

P: n/a
Thinking of learning VB.NET? New programmer? Thinking of Moving over
from VB 6.0?

Read on friend, let me help you make a more informed decision.........
Microsoft are a pathetic company, but they have got worse over the last

5 years. Here are just a few reasons (there are many more), not to
sacrifice
your time learning a computer language that they have control over.

Stupid marketing
********************
Plenty of retarded marketing that no-one understands. Shrouding their
unwanted products in mystery. Read the web site and try to figure out
what each product "actually does". Steamlines workflow seamlessly -
blah blah fucking blah - it all means nothing to me - just
unintelligible marketing hype.
Constant change without benefit
*************************************
Invest you time over years learning computer languages and techniques -

only to have the techniques changed every 2 years and languages
discontinued. So you can flush everything you have learned down the
toilet.
What's more the "newer" "better" way is never newer or better.
Instead it is slower - with more code to write, more stupid wizards
that you don't want because you know you can't trust them and must
remain in control.
Changing the way recordsets work so that the underlying format is xml -

even though you don't need or want the additional complexity - as its
unnecessary for a normal database and you don't want to send text
files across the internet for every data use.
Total disregard for customers
**********************************
Despite a disappointed reaction from existing vb 6.0 developers MS
decided to to discontinue Visual Basic 4 years ago. VB.NET (or
whatever their stupid marketing dept is calling it this week) is not
actualy visual basic, it is a different language than vb 6.0, with only

a few syntax similarities. They only called it VB.NET to con the
existing VB 6.0 userbase into trying it - kind of insulting to the
intelligence. That truly is a representation of the despise that they
as a company show towards customers that have purchased products from
them over a number of years. Imagine what the amount would be in
dollars if you calculate the money that companies and individuals have
lost through wasted time since the introduction of vb.net.
I for one do not plan of getting screwed over by Microsoft again. From
now on I will be using open source solutions and programming languages.

Languages that do not leave you at the mercy of these idiots.

Oh Yeah? I don't believe you.

The only way you can prove it is by going away and never coming back.

If we hear from you again in here we will have to assume that you
cannot infact stay away from VB.NET.

Actually I am thinking of creating an open source project (in vb 6.0)
to completely remove any version of the framework, VS and .NET
programs. It will remove files, clean the registry and obliterate any
trace of anything .NET. First I will copy all files to one location
then perform a low level format on them.

If anyone is interested in being involved just drop me a line.

Supported by one of the largest companies in the world

A huge programmer base to draw from

If you want to freelance, you'll NEVER be out of work (I get an average
of 8-10 calls/emails a week for .Net positions)

Constant change for the better, the framework just keeps adding more
benefit and 3.0 looks great to me (Work Flow, woohoo)

Incredible support for any type of data

Fantastic support for customers (Me and 3 coworkers went to the Tech
Center in Reston last Spring for 3 days and MS devoted a group of
technical folks to outline future plans for OS, NOS, development tools,
Office, etc., what other company does this?)
I can't believe I was against .Net 3 years ago. This is the most
robust, intuitive language I've ever worked with. I worked with
QuickBasic 4.5 and 7.0 professional many years ago. I remember when VB
1 came out and a lot of programmers were upset. I guess the difference
between me and Master Baiter (and Aaron) is that instead of whining
like my 2 yr old daughter, I just learned the new technology and moved
on.

Dear Master Programmer,

You are in the wrong newsgroup mate. The guys who work with VB do it for money,
not because it's considered to be cool, but because industry pays us to get solutions in
hours rather than in weeks or months. From an industry point of view, using .Net saves
companies money and thats it.

From a programmer view, it has a decent tools, a good debugger and runtime errors
and bugs which surface after a rollout can normally be rectified within a few hours. The
code that takes 300 lines of VB (or turning to the APi), can be done in one line using a
Common Control with .Net.

If you want a cool VB6 project, develop a module that dispatches instructions to
multiple CPU's, if they are present, which integrates transparently to our projects.

;-)

Cheers.

eat shit, Master Programmer for CEO OF MICROSOFT

you got my vote, bro

VB.net sucks.. again.. what is it called THIS WEEK?

it's all going to change again; MS just wants to make you upgrade 4
times every DECADE

fuckers in Redmond should be drawn and QUARTERED for treating us like
this.

VB.net is the redheaded stepchild of C#; it will never be successful.
I have a friend at Microsoft that told me that they're going to
discontinue the language

You my friend have been sucked in by the bullshit they try to feed us,
whats more you are WRONG WRONG WRONG. Yes they do have some built-in
functions to do certain things like the registry or NT services BUT in
general the verbosity of the code required in all situations - means
that you must type MANY MANY more lines of code.

I most certainly DO NOT consider the IDE to be better either. What the

Actually a better idea is to create an open source project to randomly
damage parts of the framework, then fix them again after a short period
of time. But I guess as the framework was developed my MS there is no
need to, as they have that covered already.

Dear Master Programmer,

Read this paper by H.P Haiduk, Director of Academic Computing at West Texas A&M
University. "Object Orientated Classic Data Structures For CS2 in Visual Basic .Net",
published in 2002. This paper is available through the ACM.

Haiduk argues that VB.Net should be considered as a viable alternative not only in 1st,
but also 2nd year Computer Science, Software Engineering, I.T degree and
postgraduate courses.

What you will see when you read this, is that .Net is actually adopted by persons who
think freely, outwith businesses, for example, those who make choices from their own
free will, like philosophers and life long academics.

What this means, (sorry if you find this offensive MP), but Pascal, Delphi, Eiffel, Oberon,
BASIC, Java and possibly C++ could actually be considered second choice when it
comes to teaching programmers from the ground up in Object Orientated Development.

Also, Haiduk strongly implies in his paper that Second Year Undergraduates will also
benefit from the classic data structures VB.Net has to offer such as dynamic memory
allocation, hash tables etc.

It's ok to make mistakes, but only an idiot perists in his error.

Cheers.

OOP shouldn't be taught in college; it's unnecessary crap that makes

general the verbosity of the code required in all situations - means
that you must type MANY MANY more lines of code.

I most certainly DO NOT consider the IDE to be better either. What the
fuck happened to the SDI environment?

From a programmer view, it has a decent tools, a good debugger and runtime

The

If you want a cool VB6 project, develop a module that dispatches instructions to
multiple CPU's, if they are present, which integrates transparently to our projects.

Dear Master Programmer,

Read this paper by H.P Haiduk, Director of Academic Computing at West Texas A&M
University. "Object Orientated Classic Data Structures For CS2 in Visual Basic .Net",
published in 2002. This paper is available through the ACM.

Haiduk argues that VB.Net should be considered as a viable alternative not only in 1st,
but also 2nd year Computer Science, Software Engineering, I.T degree and
postgraduate courses.

What you will see when you read this, is that .Net is actually adopted by persons who
think freely, outwith businesses, for example, those who make choices from their own
free will, like philosophers and life long academics.

What this means, (sorry if you find this offensive MP), but Pascal, Delphi, Eiffel, Oberon,
BASIC, Java and possibly C++ could actually be considered second choice when it
comes to teaching programmers from the ground up in Object Orientated Development.

Also, Haiduk strongly implies in his paper that Second Year Undergraduates will also
benefit from the classic data structures VB.Net has to offer such as dynamic memory
allocation, hash tables etc.

It's ok to make mistakes, but only an idiot perists in his error.

Cheers.

P: n/a
Aaron, I may need to take a few days off next month. Do you think that
you can do me a favour and cover for me when I am away? I know its a
bit of added workload, but I can return the favour, so that things
don't get too quiet here.

I have been working on a auto-bot scripting tool that can post a number
of flames and abusive replies, but its not quite complete and still
needs a bit of human intervention. It should be complete in about 6
weeks - then I will really show these fuckers. Its difficult to get
the time as I am so busy with work, most companies in my area that
won't go near VB.NET, so VB 6.0 jobs just keep rolling in.

In the meantime I plan to step things up now and be a lot more active
in the newsgroup. I think with a little more effort we can really make
a difference.

The

If you want a cool VB6 project, develop a module that dispatches instructions to

Exactly Roddy - you hit it on the nail !

Academics love it, that is a very BAD thing !!! Academics (unlike
normal people) prefer over-complexity. This can be driven by a number
of things.....

- Need to show off to peers (be "recognized")
- Mental stimulation (in their own little cushioned world)
- Want of fame (to go down in history for an invention)
- Feeling of superiority
- Time to burn

Unlike a programmer in the real world (instead of a uni lab) for them
there is no need for any type of commercial success - speed is not
important. They would rather just "play around with OOP" and wile the
time away making some crazy invention.

I know of a few companies that have a standard policy of refusing to
employ any academic type programmers, because they try to make
everything "technically perfect" - but it takes them forever to finish
anything (if they ever do).

So yes - you are right. Academics would like VB.NET. Which is
precisely the reason it is of no use whatsoever in the *Real World*.

I appreciate your love for VB6, but keep it out of my face.

"There is no reason to be rude, I am just trying to help aspiring
programmers by giving them a real picture of Microsoft and why they
should not use the software." MP

Yeah... that's why you posted your little vb ego-trip in the
microsoft.public.dotnet.languages.vb usenet group. It's obvious that
you would receive a firey reaction, so I can only assume that's what
you're after, a bit of attention.

I, like 99% of people here, am very happy to use the .NET framework.
Either because of industry demands (i.e. earning a living, and keeping
with the times), or due to it's object oriented approach. I'm no
academic boffin or PHD scholar, but from a day-to-day point of view,
VB.NET saves me a lot of time (and yes I used to programme in VB 4, 5
and 6 for many years). Why do you talk like high education, wisdom or
knowledge are bad anyways? ... oh wait... the reason's kind of obvious
now, isn't it.

there IS reason to stand up for VB.
it was the worlds' most popular language.

And when WE STAND UP FOR IT; YOU AND YOUR M$ CRAP TRY TO ATTACK US WITH

Yeah... that's why you posted your little vb ego-trip in the
microsoft.public.dotnet.languages.vb usenet group. It's obvious that
you would receive a firey reaction, so I can only assume that's what
you're after, a bit of attention.

I, like 99% of people here, am very happy to use the .NET framework.
Either because of industry demands (i.e. earning a living, and keeping
with the times), or due to it's object oriented approach. I'm no
academic boffin or PHD scholar, but from a day-to-day point of view,
VB.NET saves me a lot of time (and yes I used to programme in VB 4, 5
and 6 for many years). Why do you talk like high education, wisdom or
knowledge are bad anyways? ... oh wait... the reason's kind of obvious
now, isn't it.

I know of a few companies that have a standard policy of refusing to

So yes - you are right. Academics would like VB.NET. Which is

From a programmer view, it has a decent tools, a good debugger and runtime

The
code that takes 300 lines of VB (or turning to the APi), can be done in one line
using a
Common Control with .Net.

If you want a cool VB6 project, develop a module that dispatches instructions to
multiple CPU's, if they are present, which integrates transparently to our projects.

Dear Master Programmer,

It's good that you are sceptical of the way others think. But understanding algorithms
and data structures are difficult, but necessary, for people to grasp. Hence why
VB.Net is applauded. The guy who wrote that paper I quoted previously works in the
same place as Bjarne Stroustrap.

As for growth, 57% of businesses in the USA incorporate .Net into their projects. This
doesn't take into account Europe, Middle East or Asia.

The reason why it is so popular is because using it for OOP, not just in
academia, is because turn around time is shorter. How VB enforces us to implement
polymorphism, encapsulation or inheritance, as it is in .Net, isn't clear.

As you correctly pointed out, OOP code has execution overheads but this is the same
for any OO language, even C++. This has been known in industry for well over ten
years, MP.

Also, because OOP code takes more time to execute, means that we should stop
developing in it? You may as well say, "Stop developing in OOP languages altogether,
including the mighty Java", because this language suffers from OO overhead too.

You keep saying how we should stick to VB6, like it is some ''awesome systems
programming'', language like C. Sorry if this offends you but the bigger picture is that
VB is just a Microsoft product, whose creators will not go down in history like Ritchie or
Kernighan. VB6 is a MS product that is quickly being forgotton about.

Merry Xmas.

P: n/a
I call bullshit on your statistic.

just because I run Windows Update; that doesn't mean that I
'incorporate .NET in their projects'

what percentage of SOFTWARE DRIVERS require .NET?

what percentage of people are still on dialup? 60%?
it's impractical to have dialup users ever download a 150 mb .NET
framework install

turn around time ISNT shorter for OOP.
I call HOGWASH on your ass.

I think that this:
Also, because OOP code takes more time to execute, means that we should stop
developing in it? You may as well say, "Stop developing in OOP languages altogether,
including the mighty Java", because this language suffers from OO overhead too.
Is the _TRUEST_STATEMENT_EVER_

fuck java and fuck .NET
I'll just use PHP for the next 50 years; see if I give a damn
PHP is the natural successor to VB6

And for the record.. VB6 is not going to be FORGOTTEN.

IT WAS THE MOST POPULAR LANGUAGE OF THE REST; AND VB6 IS PROBABLY STILL
MORE POPULAR THAN ALL THIS .NET CRAP

Excel Macros
Outlook Macros
Access Macros
Word Macros
Save a DTS package as VB.net
Write a VBS file in VB.net
ServerSide ASP in VB.net
CLIENTSIDE DHTML in VB.net

when I can do _ALL_ of those in vb.net then maybe I'll stop bitching.
As it is; they've replaced ONE LANGUAGE WITH THREE.

Movig From VB6, VB6, VB6 and VB6
to
C#, VB.net, VB6 and JAVASCRIPT-- this is a lose, lose proposition.

I know that your VB.net calculator takes 30 seconds to launch-- so many
you can't calculate this yet.

BUT ASKING ALL USERS OF THE WORLDS MOST POPULAR LANGUAGE TO MOVE FROM
ONE LANGUAGE TO _FOUR_

FUCK YOU AND FUCK YOUR FUCKING STUPID ASS DOT NOT MOTHERFUCKER

Dear Master Programmer,

Read this paper by H.P Haiduk, Director of Academic Computing at West Texas A&M
University. "Object Orientated Classic Data Structures For CS2 in Visual Basic .Net",
published in 2002. This paper is available through the ACM.

Haiduk argues that VB.Net should be considered as a viable alternative not only in 1st,
but also 2nd year Computer Science, Software Engineering, I.T degree and
postgraduate courses.

What you will see when you read this, is that .Net is actually adopted by persons who
think freely, outwith businesses, for example, those who make choices from their own
free will, like philosophers and life long academics.

What this means, (sorry if you find this offensive MP), but Pascal, Delphi, Eiffel, Oberon,
BASIC, Java and possibly C++ could actually be considered second choice when it
comes to teaching programmers from the ground up in Object Orientated Development.

Also, Haiduk strongly implies in his paper that Second Year Undergraduates will also
benefit from the classic data structures VB.Net has to offer such as dynamic memory
allocation, hash tables etc.

It's ok to make mistakes, but only an idiot perists in his error.

Cheers.

Unlike a programmer in the real world (instead of a uni lab) for them

I know of a few companies that have a standard policy of refusing to

So yes - you are right. Academics would like VB.NET. Which is

Dear Master Programmer,

Read this paper by H.P Haiduk, Director of Academic Computing at West Texas A&M
University. "Object Orientated Classic Data Structures For CS2 in Visual Basic .Net",
published in 2002. This paper is available through the ACM.

Haiduk argues that VB.Net should be considered as a viable alternative not only in 1st,
but also 2nd year Computer Science, Software Engineering, I.T degree and
postgraduate courses.

What you will see when you read this, is that .Net is actually adopted by persons who
think freely, outwith businesses, for example, those who make choices from their own
free will, like philosophers and life long academics.

What this means, (sorry if you find this offensive MP), but Pascal, Delphi, Eiffel, Oberon,
BASIC, Java and possibly C++ could actually be considered second choice when it
comes to teaching programmers from the ground up in Object Orientated Development.

Also, Haiduk strongly implies in his paper that Second Year Undergraduates will also
benefit from the classic data structures VB.Net has to offer such as dynamic memory
allocation, hash tables etc.

It's ok to make mistakes, but only an idiot perists in his error.

Cheers.

Times are changing whether you accept it or not, for whatever reason.
You're missing the point, industry standards isn't a single blanket
solution for every possible problem. However, .NET (and particularly
VB.NET) is now the weapon of choice when we examine what used to be the
VB6 market.

You imply by your narrowminded comments that we here don't know SQL
Server, PHP, etc? Wait, what are you arguing about now? I have
knowledge and experience in many programming languages and platforms.

What are you, 13 years old? Grow up.

It's obvious that you're just trolling this usenet group, so I'll stop
this pointless arguing with you. You're not here to learn or be
involved with meaningfull conversation.

Yeah... that's why you posted your little vb ego-trip in the
microsoft.public.dotnet.languages.vb usenet group. It's obvious that
you would receive a firey reaction, so I can only assume that's what
you're after, a bit of attention.

I, like 99% of people here, am very happy to use the .NET framework.
Either because of industry demands (i.e. earning a living, and keeping
with the times), or due to it's object oriented approach. I'm no
academic boffin or PHD scholar, but from a day-to-day point of view,
VB.NET saves me a lot of time (and yes I used to programme in VB 4, 5
and 6 for many years). Why do you talk like high education, wisdom or
knowledge are bad anyways? ... oh wait... the reason's kind of obvious
now, isn't it.

Hi Aaron

I have moved on to educating these people now. I am teaching them the

Hopefully this will allow newcomers to the group to see the truth
