Visual Basic 6 is one of the world's most widely used programming languages. It takes an approach to computer programming called RAD, which emphasizes ease and speed of software development. Other popular programming languages such as C, C++, and Java are not necessarily so easy to create programs with, but they do tend to have other strengths. Many believe that VB6 is an ideal language for users who are new to programming, or users who previously used related languages such as QuickBASIC and wish to move to more advanced programming.

Pros and Cons of VB[edit | edit source]
- Is extremely popular
- Has a large base of freely accessible source code
- Easy to learn. Logical operator names for the most part
- Is an easy-to-use option for almost all user-land programs for Windows
- It isn't nearly as easy to decompile or hack VB6 apps as C or C++ apps
- Runs on every copy of WinXP ever released, by default, as long as you don't add extra dependencies
- Runs on every version of Windows, form Win95 to Win10 (last version).
- Runs as fast as C, C++, etc. in most situations
- Runs most things quicker than VB.NET
- It is particularly malleable, therefore novice programmers can make many mistakes without realizing.
