I regularly get questions from teachers about Visual Studio and Visual Basic. This is my frequently asked questions list. Feel free to send me more questions about using Visual Basic in the classroom either by leaving a comment or by sending email to me at Alfred.Thompson at Microsoft.com
Why should I upgrade from Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic .NET?
Why should I choose to teach using Visual Basic .NET?
Why should I upgrade from Visual Basic .NET 2002/2003 to Visual Basic .NET 2005?
When will support for Visual Basic 6.0 end?
How much does it cost for a high school to upgrade to Visual Basic .NET 2005?
What are the configuration requirements for Visual Basic .NET 2005?
The answer depends on “what do you mean by support?” The complete support explanation for Visual Basic 6.0 is available at http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?p1=2971
