We just started using VB for all development of new software for the end
user.  I have used Visual Age and I have to say I did not like it.  It was
to limiting.  We also have ASNA Visual RPG which I think is a big step up on
IBM,s product.  It is more of a windows product and very close to VB in
function if you are using their 3.0 product.  We switched to VB for the
simple reason it is easier to find VB programmers than it is to find RPG
programmers or Visual RPG programmers.
