Mono and dotGNU? These are the OpenSource versions of the .NET runtime! Boy, you can run/compile your C# and VB.NET apps in Linux!

Sorry about your hard disk. Hope you don't have a lot of stuffs on it. I heard people say seagate crash more often than other brands.

where have u been? microsoft have re-designed VB its now fully OOP and its just as good a C, and when it comes to porting to another platform its also possible because the whole idea behide .net is that its platform independant, all linux needs to have is the .net framework but i dont think microsoft will ever release a .Net framework for a rival platform like linux, but i think there's one for Mac OS and Palm OS.

Codes written for .net platform does not run on Linux but I think an emulator can help in that regards. I've not tried it though, and not very sure as my works on Linux is mainly with java So I don't bother any other OS with windows things.

If you are so particular about interaction between .Net languages and Linux, you can google "mono" to know more

For VB express, try using a download manager so that it will not be very frustrating. OR I can burn it for you if you have a blank CD but I'm in Abuja.

thanks does that mean code written i vb 2005 would be able to run on other os like linux because vb 6 stop only on windows. when it comes to speed vb has no rival when it comes to porting codes to other os i believe c would win

Keep at it brother. If you consider the power it gives you and the ease of leaning together, you are probably on the best programming language. If you can let me know the part you have problem with I can check for some of my collection that treated it very well for you. There is no programming language that should trouble anybody that can read and write english language

You can check these websites for materials

VB6 sure has some shortcomings but they really didn't impact much on it's strength. But vb2005 rub shoulders with the best language in the world. For Rapid Application Development, there is yet to be a language like VB. I know you like open source stuffs. Try www.sharpdevelop.com for an open source alternetive to microsoft VB IDE. You'll need .Net framework 2.0. Microsoft also has a free but a bit watered down VB studio on their web site. You won't miss the features left out unless you are developing in a team or you want to make a custom control. You can make VB your 2nd (or 3rd) language.
