 getting started, what to buy and where to buy it?

I'm a database developer (visual foxpro) who would like to begin working
with VB for desktop apps (specifically, I mean I have no need to run an app
in a web server type of environment).

What should I buy and where should I buy it?  Do they sell VB separate from
VS?  Do I buy VB DotNet or VB 6?

Thanks.

Most definitely VB.NET over VB6. Yes, a lot of people still dont have the
.NET framework installed on their machines, and yes, it is a 20+ MB download
for them, but IMHO vb.net is *so* much better than vb6.

If you can afford vs.net, I'd reccommend you get it, its really easy to
switch from vb.net to C#, and its always useful to be able to use both.
VS.NET also includes tools to make it easier to work with databases.

AFAIK VB-Classic (6.0) is not sold any more. You can buy it 2nd hand.
