    If you used VS.NET 2005 then you know VB.NET because all versions of Visual Studio .NET use VB.NET.  VS.NET 2002 (VB7), 2003(VB7.1), 2005(VB8), 2008(VB9), and 2010(VB10) all used VB.NET. 

    what is the relation of vb and vb.net? is vb.net is next version of vb versions?

    VB.NET is the successor to the Visual Basic languages used version named VB 1.0 -> VB 6.0.  The biggest change for all .NET languages was the introduction of a managed code development environment using the .NET Framework. Programs developed using .NET are not compiled to machine language (like old VB6 is, for example) but instead to a format called Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) or Common Intermediate Language (CIL).

    The main concept here is to understand the differences between 'managed' and 'unmanaged' code.  With a .NET language like VB.NET, you can decompile the binary built to see the MSIL.  With a VB6 binary you could not do this.

    The current version of VB.NET is 'VB10' which is in VS.NET2010 which was just released this past spring 2010.  I wouldn't be concerned with the 'next' version at this point as there is plenty to learn about the newest released version in VS.NET 2010.

    One interesting fact, is for years Microsoft had 2 different teams working on C# and VB.NET, hence the different functionality between the (2) languages.  Now Microsoft has teamed them together in a process called 'co-evolution' so that the features between languages is becoming more similar.

    VB .NET is pretty much the .NET version of the COM based VB classic (version 1.0 to 6.0). Most of the VB language itself "survived" the transition to .NET and has since been extended quite a bit.

    Hi,

    Vb and Vb.net are considered as near  to each other because vb.net syntax is same as Vb,but vb.net has great edge over vb because vb.net is pure object oriented programming language.Yes one more thing you will enjoy while working with vb.net is that you can use all the functions of old vb just by importing visulabasic namingspace at the top.So.it wouldn't take much time for you to learn it.

    Vb.net is great language which is again created from scratch by Micrsoft but keeping all the vb6 developers in consideration.

    If you want to learn vb.net,Go for it ,because it is heart of micrsoft and they will keep this language till they live.

    enjoy....

    Regards
