How different is .NET from VB6??
From an applications developers point of view - Very different.

If I know Access, VB Scripting or VB, is it easy to become proficient in .NET?
Many long term (5years+) VB programmers I know have done a course in VB.NET (like one of those little 1 week course) and also lots of books.
