You can create plenty new with VB, as you can with C++. There are no shortcuts if you want to create something amazing with this new extension system, and I'll present everybody with an example of an IM client and/or WebKit-based browser using the extension system after release.
For your second point... You'll see when it's out
- Thanks for clearing that up, sounds interesting. I'm going to stick to coding in just C++ now in till i see exact proof of what it does.
@freedompeace I like your unique idea of thinking but when you said
"Coding without coding" Thats were I dislike it. If you have a program that creates a hack for you and all you have to do is change the menu and such a way you can never create something Completely new? With all coding you have full flexibility to make or create anything you want. In VB you can't create anything new its basically all junk code. I support you logic, but i might not use it as i wanna become a programmer and want no shortcuts

- Meaning he's not going to mass release on every hack website. Hes most likely to PM you the new hack thing or release for a day and have a mod take it down?
when he says "coding without coding" it's more of you create stuff with scripts in seconds, he's basically making an API, so you can still learn programming, as APIs are used everywhere (like every #include in C++) and it's only "coding without coding" for simple stuff, the more complex stuff would require creating extensions, which can be more time consuming and require more knowledge in C++ and such
Actually, I can't think of a reason. Although I would rather learn to do it the real way, the nitty gritty from the bottom up 'I-know-what-i'm-actually-doing' way. On the other hand I suck at learning from books and no one wants to teach, so maybe this is better.
