Well I taught myself mostly but I don't think I was a born programmer.
As a matter of fact I went after a programming job with my local city
council only last month and, guess what?  I failed the aptitude test!

Well it really depends upon how much time you're prepared to spend on
your programming. If you've a deadline to meet then VisualBASIC is your
best bet, especially as you already know TurboBASIC (although I should
warn you that there are many differences between the two). VisualBASIC
programs are a lot easier to write and maintain than C++ ones and the
learning curve is much shorter.

On the other hand C++ is a lot more powerful than VB and it allows you
to write much more versatile and sophisticated programs. The way I see
it is that VB protects you from the environment too much and limits the
things that you can do, while C++ allows you almost complete control
of the computer. Added to that C++ programs tend to be smaller and
faster than VB ones and don't need that dratted VBRUN module.

A lot of people will curse me, I know, but, If it were me, I'd plump
for C++ every time. I do, in fact, tend to use Visual C++ for any
Windows programming I need to do.
