I have used both VB and rev and while they both
effectively do the same thing, I have to say that VB
is rather gray and uninspiring by comparison.
I find that the so called "cosmetic details" of a
language or a development platform are in reality way
more than merely cosmetic - it's like a car you drive
every day wherein even the little things that niggle
can eventually make your life miserable - you want the
controls on the dash to look great and be easy on the
eye and the doors to shut easily with a nice solid
clunk, the steering wheel to feel good in your hands
as you're zooming effortlessly along etc. etc. VB may
have been some hot s**t in its day, but now it justs
reminds me of my old Fiat.
We should concede them a minor point about the rev
documentation though. Yes, all the info is there -
somewhere - but it's arranged more like a jigsaw
puzzle than a book and when I'm trying to learn a new
programming language, a book is a whole lot easier.
All that said, IMHO rev wins hand down!
