Hello I only know qbasic and some c++ and a little asm, I have never programmed for windows, I recently ordered a book on qbasic with an introduction to visual basic 5.0. What should I be prepared for? what is this about forms? and what does object oriented really mean? I only know linear programming.

I would suggest you check out PowerBasic.

They have 2 windows compilers; both resonable.

No runtimes are requires (as with VB).

A lot of the syntax is much more like QB (at least to me).
Their Forum is the Very BEST.

Check them out at PowerBasic.com
