Response to meh, QB is a hack language
"A programming language serves two related purposes: it provides a vehicle for the programmer to specify actions to be executed, and it provides a set of concepts for the programmer to use when thinking about what can be done. The first aspect ideally requires a language that is 'close to the machine'....the second aspect ideally requires a language that is 'close to the problem to be solved'."
Everything is a trade-off. QB was designed to be closer to...certain types of problems...being addressed by certain types of programmers. Speed considerations don't count for much until you can produce a program that actually works.
