Nah, VB was, for a while, good for a very specific purpose: Writing simple GUI tools and database frontends quickly, without having to worry (much) about destabilizing the rest of the system or leaking out all the RAM with a badly-written MFC app.

It was never meant for high-end computing or commercial applications, though I've seen it used for both.

Just like Excel... It's an amazing application if you use it as a spreadsheet, or for prototyping. Once you have tons of VBA macros and entire applications written in it, you'll want to shoot yourself. Been there, too.
Proud to have finally moved to the A-Ark. Which one are you in?
