Vb6 versus .net

#1

Hi guys,

would you say that that .net is not an update from vb6 but rather a completely new and stand-alone language?

Iam not a developer so sorry if the question need improvement, if i should give more information, please give me a hint.

greetings and thanks in advance

.Net is a framework, not a language. Many programming languages can be used with it, Visual Basic .NET (VB.NET for short) one of them.

VB.NET indeed is not an update of VB6, it is a separate language. It was originally designed to make switching from VB6 to VB.NET easy, so there are many similarities between them.

Thank you very much, so if you had to choose between answers Update or completely new, you would choose new?

Greetings
