    Default VB.Net and ASP.net vs. VB and ASP

    I have been using asp for a whiel with vbscript and want to learn VB. I have heard thru the grapevine that VB.net is different enough from VB that I should focus on VB.net from the getgo. Is thie true? and can VB.net and C# build stand alone apps??<BR><BR>-M

    VB.NET is, IMO, quite a bit different than Visual Basic, large enough that there is still a fairly steep learning curve for those who&#039;ve done VB for a long time. So, yes, learning VB.NET off the bat would be best, since it&#039;s the way of the future.<BR><BR>And yes, VS.NET and C# can be used to create stand-alone Windows applications. See http://www.geocities.com/scott_k_mitchell/, I have a stand-alone Windows app I wrote (Minesweeper.NET) and a command-line Windows program that finds the longest common subsequence of two randomly chosen strings. The code is available for both. (Realize that you must have the .NET Framework Beta 2 bits installed for either of these programs to work for you, which you can download freely from http://msdn.microsoft.com/downloads/default.asp?URL=/code/sample.asp?url=/MSDN-FILES/027/001/659/msdncompositedoc.xml
