&gt; &gt; Well, VB is cheap, easy , plenty of developers (I think it is the # 1

&gt; object-oriented
&gt; &gt; (no, not object based).  It can easily access and use C++ and
&gt; Windows API's
&gt; &gt; is scalable to probably about 90% of what business's require.
&gt; It is not a
&gt; &gt; scripting language (like HTML) but a full development language.  It

&gt; For 'RAD at its best', I'd hand the trophy to Clarion rather than VB.
&gt; It's hard to beat creating a data dictionary and then generating a
&gt; full-blown application for maintaining the defined database with just a
&gt; few clicks of the mouse.
