Once Vb.net is released to public I will buy a book on it. Right now you can check out Vb.net's framework on Msdn.microsoft.com, It is a completley new language. It looks very cool and powerfull. Your suppose to be able to convert vb.net (vb7) to c# (c++ 7) and stuff like that. Its gonne be like a script but it will still have the Nice interface and will still be OOB (Object Orianted Programing).
