Microsoft has released more resources than ever with the newer programming languages than in the past it seems. The Visual Basic.NET 2008 RTM release comes with MANY examples ranging from PowerPoint and Exel, to Chatroom, GDI, and many others.

As you can see, there are some useful and interesting examples that Microsoft has available. If you see something that interests you, then simply go to this link for the download page at the msdn website. The download size is just over 9 MB, so if you have a slow speed connection like Dial-Up, then it could take you awhile to get. Wanted to also mention that some of the source code in these examples may work with earlier versions of Visual Basic.NET, especially VB.NET 2005.  Anyways, have fun!
