VB 6 to VB.NET

Hello,

I can say that I am in *intermediate* level of VB 6 but I am *advanced* in Java J2EE hence I need some feedback from you all, experts. I normally created application in VB 6 accessing Access as a DB using ADO, create the setup using Inno and done.

Now, as .NET is the latest technologies. I have few questions.
1. How stable is VB.NET compared to VB 6? Can you tell me from your experiences?
2. How hard is it to move to VB.NET? Are the languages similar? Do not have much time to have a look at the samples.
3. As far as I know, for web app, ASP.NET is the right choice. Can I assume that to develop a web app using .NET, you should use ASP.NET with C# and for desktop application using .NET, you can use VB.NET?
4. How do you create the setup using VB.NET? Can I use Inno Setup (this is brilliant software) as well?
5. Last question but not least, can we develop desktop app using C#? If so, what reasons that you consider in choosing between C# or VB.NET?

Thanks
David

Ill answer these is descending order

5)  Absolutely you can create C# desktop apps.  As far as the differences, like the link will say the biggest is a matter of preference.  this website goes into incredible detail

4)  The .NET suite has its own setup configurability.  However, you can choose not to do it and go with Inno

3)  ASP.NET is the way to go for web apps....and can be done with either VB.NET or C#

2)  Personally I grew up on C, then got a job coding in VB6.  After about 6 months of VB6 I moved to VB.NET and the transition was very easy.

1)  VB.NET is completely OO.  Also the .NET API nearly gets rid of all calls to COM objects.  Also, the best answer to your question of stability is the garbage collection is much more sophisticated.

hope this helps,
