I've already been a VB user for almost seven years. However, I must confess that I've rarely touched it since the last multimedia medical project. We used VB 6 in our development team, for that VB.NET didn't gain ground at that time. The first time I heard of VB.NET was in mid-2002. Then all of a sudden when I got up in the next morning, Microsoft .NET technology seemed to have become popular overnight. Buzzwords and slogans were everywhere: on the Internet, on the weighty books of published abstracts, on T-shirts, on sweatshirts, and even on souvenir pens. Is VB.NET still VB? Everyone may bear the question in his mind when he first glimpses at it. <i>Object-Oriented Programming with Visual Basic.NET</i> by Michael McMillan will give you a reasonable answer.
