Visual Basic Questions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a few Visual Basic questions I'm having trouble with could anybody help me?

1. The term 'Disconnected Data Source' is heavily used when talking about ADO.Net. What does it actually mean?

2. Can system programming such as programming an Operating System or Compiler be done in VB.Net?

3. There are a lot of advantages of using VB.Net and .Net for the developers. But why should a client or a developer jump to VB.Net and .Net? It looks like the user has to additionally install the .Net Framework in order to run the .Net application. Does it mean that the "Just in Time Compilation" outweighs the overhead of the .Net framework with no other apparent benefits?

1. I assume it would be used for external data. Like databases instead of changing the data in the actual database it would be changed in memory. Or perhaps it could have something to do with an external file such as a .ini file or something?
2. No
3. Everyone by now should have .Net 1.1 at least. Media Center REQUIRES 1.x and so do a lot of other apps these days. It saves some time but all in all it's not that bad.

*I've taken very few classes in programming and most of my VB knowledge is self-taught.

Thanks a lot MOdki, can someone help me with these?

1. How is it possible to call the methods of the Console Class when I did not create an object from it?
2. How can you do compilation and execution separately using Visual Studio.Net (VS.Net)?
