Round 1, Match 11 of the 2nd Programming Language World Championships!

@fribbledom NGL, No one has beaten VB's super easy GUI programming. Not even Qt or Lua :blobmiou:

@fribbledom got a soft spot for VB, as it was the language I used in my first professional programming job. Also got deep and enduring anger at VB based on that experience 😅

@fribbledom
Of the two, I actually used VB at some point. Understood enough in less than a week to make something that was even commercially useful ... but seriously, it's a crappy language.
The very simple things are very simple, everything else is difficult/weird, and not suitable for a "high" language.

A language for beginners, mainly because only beginners won't notice the flaws.
