OK, I know that VB.NET is a programming language derived from Visual Basic.
What are some good websites to learn VB.NET?
I believe one must have Win XP Pro (not Home) or Win 2000 to run from my home computer? What else would I need?
Vb.net is going to work on any windows nt os, including home. Asp.net on the other hand will only run on xp homne with mono or cassini though, IIS will not run on home. If vb.net only worked on pro osses no one would use it.
www.4guysfromrolla.com is a good place to learn asp.net
www.msdn.com is a good place for everything by ms
But there are tons of good vb.net tutorials out there just a google away.
VB.Net is much faster than VB6 and its the future. vb.net is probably a good one to learn if you already know vb6. msdn is the best place to learn but a book on vb.net is better way to learn.
just about every bit of vb6 will move over to vb.net. Vb.net has a lot of extra features that are not backwards compadable. But all of your vb6 will carry over.
many things are new in dot net like
Recordset -------------> DataSet
the advantage is that it can work in the disconnected environment also
and XML compatiblity........ really power ful feature.....
and many manything new
so enjoy dotnet
