Not really true anymore. The original VB had a lot of the bad
stuff from early BASIC but VB.NET is a very capable modern
programming language. I was surprised just how good even
the basic VBScript is. Certainly for messing with WSH/COM
I find VBScript much easier than Python.

Well VB is much easier to learn than C++ or Java and much safer
to use than C++. Python is a better general purpose language than
VB but there are places where VB simply gets on with the job where
Python needs some nursemaiding
