  A day or 2 ago I posted a news bit at my site about the RTM (release to manufacture) of VS 08 and Microsoft letting MSDN Subscribers have first shot at getting it. Micosoft has now released the Express versions and are available to everyone. Whats also good is that the Express versions are still completely free. VS 08 was codenamed Orcas and includes some pretty major changes like LINQ support. Below are some links to download the Express versions and to get Documentation and Samples.

  Unfortunately, Microsofts Servers are getting Hammered pretty bad. I can’t hardly get a 100KB download speed. (600KB is the norm for me) If you want more information, click this link to go to the main Visual Studio 2008 Express information page. Have fun!

Although I personally recommend going straight to Visual Basic.NET if your new to VB programming, Visual Basic 6.0 is still VERY popular and even though Microsoft has killed mainstream support for VB 6, it is NOT going away any time soon.

There is a 22 Lesson Tutorial that starts at the very basics of Visual Basic programming. Teaches how to use variables, objects, functions, arrays, menu’s, file and database access and MUCH more. So if you are interested in learning VB 6, or maybe want to get a refresher, then check out the link below to get started.

The VB.NET version is similar to the 6.0 version. If your brand new to .NET then click the link below to get started as an absolute beginner point of view. The tutorial list is on the right-hand side of the page.
