Is Python good enough to replace Visual Basic?

Comments Filter:
  • Anything is ready to replace VB. The only thing VB ever had going for it was
    1) Drag-n-drop gui (hence quick windows applications)
    2)MS Office automation
    3) DB programing

    Now that VS.NET allows for #1 via Windows Forms (tm), there really isn't a need to program in VB anymore. #2 only matters if you are using MS Office, obviously. #3 is debatable.

  • ...is that Python is bad enough to replace Visual "Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code". Are Kemeny and Kurtz dead yet? :-)

Technology is dominated by those who manage what they do not understand.
