Fado fado (long time ago) I did Visual Basic (6 i think) and Java in collage. I hated VB with a passion boring as hell drawing boxes all day long much prefered the OO Java.
Anyway am now doing this teach yourself c++ in 21 days if you want a look.
I'm finding it very easy because its so simaler to java (which i havent touched in 5 years or more but is coming back to me!) so i dont know what its like for a novice.
