    Hmm... neither is really better than the other. And saying you like one because you learned it in school is like saying I like biology better than art because I learned in school. But of course, I dislike biology... a lot.

    His sentiment was pretty much right. It's a matter of both preference, and what you plan on using it for. I can think of situations where either could be the preferred language. For a fast GUI program, or a map editor, or such, VB is handy because it can throw together a GUI very quickly. On the other hand, for a large-ish 3D game or somesuch where speed and low-level resource management is crucial, C++ would be a preferred language.

    Neither is technically "better".

    It all comes down to the task at hand, C is a very powerful program and can be used to create a wide variety of other programs, it is one powerful tool, but you must pay a good price for learning it to, it is very difficult. Visual Basic which is much simpler to learn is much weaker than C but don't get me wrong Visual Basic is a pretty handy tool too. I use VB for a lot of stuff that I do. But I am planning to learn C since I can not deal with the restrictions, that I am being faced with.

    Yes you do. Neither are "better". They are just different. It depends entirely on what task you need the programming language to do that makes one a better choice than the other.

    I think C++ is a much better programming language than VB because it can create a wide variety of different powerful programs.
