Hi domyg, welcome to DaniWeb.

VB is alright, but its only really compatible with Windows. C++ is more cross-platform (dependant on the code used) and Java; whilst cross-platform compatible like C++, it needs a Java Runtime installed in order to be ran successfully.

I think VB is a good starting place for a new programmer, but if you want to be serious with programming, you'll find yourself wanting to move to bigger and better things over time (as I am now - I want to get learning Java).
