    Do any programmers absolutely hate the fact that the scroll wheel on the mouse is not functional in Visual Basic? I am sure I am asking the wrong crowd, but just thought I'd rant about it. Stupid freaking microsoft. I am also perturbed at the fact that pi is not defined as a variable, function or anything in VB, you have declare it everytime you write new code...grrr... It's always the little things that get to you.

    the language and syntax is nearly identical, but they do too different things.

    vbscript is similar to javascript.
    visual basic is similar to c++

    one is for client side browser apps/scripts, one is for programs

    Yes. Not a lot of people code in Vb, but it is a language similar to c++, which is used A LOT in the aerospace world for writing everything.

    TurboEdit is written in VB, btw.

    Where doesn't the scroll work in VB?
    I use VB6 and never had any trouble, one thing i did hate is when i forget to
    End Do or close a loop and VB crashes my program... i finally found a way to stop it without losing it though!
