joabj writes "ZD Net has a story on how Microsoft's developer base for Visual Basic may be eroding. A March survey found that the use of VB slipped in the last year by almost 20 percent for programmers using multiple languages--from 62 to 46 percent. A quote from one programmer summed up why this may so: "They have changed Visual Basic to make it more like C++, which begs the question: Why don't we just use C++ or Delphi? Or Java?""
