Answer / anand shanbhag

1. There is no doubt that VB6 is a powerful and matured
tool, but as we all know in today's world people want
something which can perform both web & desktop applications
quickly and easily. This is one of the reason why developers
have moved from VB6 to say VB.NET.

2. If you think that OOPS concepts are the mother of all
modern programming language then VB6 misses out various
important OOPS concept and hence its outdated.

3. Developers at the miscrosoft have opted to shift to
VB.NET from VB and hence it is becoming outdated.

4 VB6 is not platform independent due to VB runtime. but
VB.NET is platform independent due to Dotnet's CLR.

Answer / anand shanbhag

>>VB.Net is also platform dependent and second thing platform dependence and CLR are tatolly different things.

I agree with you on one point that CLR is not the one which make .net platform independent. Its CIL/MSIL/IL that makes it Platform independent. This IL concept is absent in the VB6. Though there is something like p-code (portable code) but that doesn't make it platform independent.

1) .Net framework like Mono on MAC OS make this VB.NET program executable on MAC OS X 10.5 Leopard platform!!!

2) With CIL/IL it is possible to create the machine level code depending upon the type of processor with the help of Jit compilers/Jitters.

And hence because of these all reasons, i dare to say that VB.NET is platform independent and VB6 is not.

The fourth point is wrong because as i know VB.Net is also
platform dependent and second thing platform dependence and
CLR are tatolly different things.

You may say fourth point as due to CLR you can work on a
same project in more than one language which are supported
by DotNet platform.
