That's a rather limit set of options. If I had to broadly catorgorise my work I'd say they were Multimedia Apps.
But I also create AX controls as well. If think you find that many people here can not just pick one option.

That is interesting - that might be a fundamental role of computer technology, I think. Could you give me some examples of how VB enhances your creativity?
Here is my answer to the qustion: Why do you use VB? And I have a couple of questions for you guys.
For now I use VB as a teaching tool for myself. What I mean by that is that computer techniques can build effective environments to stimulate brainwork and improve the learning of concepts. When schoolteachers explain a complicated concept or very tedious procedure, I computerize it. Since structural design, by nature, is iterative, it helps me better understand some design process; I can try many attemts for one design case to opitimize it and also go through thousands of design cases experimentally. Secondly, I try to visulize some complex concept (at this point, this is not very effective due to my lack of VB). In the design process, especially in architecture, it is extremely important that students develop a concept( it can be anything as long as it is meaningful) and express it in an architectural language. If you viusalize something, it is much more descritive and understandable than something abatract or intangible. In view of the design process, computers save time and effort to get things done in an effective way.
Have you ever speculated about the ramifications of the computer techniques? I know it is very hard to foresee the implication of computer technology. I just want to know your thought or ideas if you have.
In your opinion, who is going to be a victum of computer technology or who is going to benifit from that?

I use it because I've always wanted to be able to make my own games, and just generally make Windows programs. I enjoy it. It's a hobby. It helps me learn. It's fun. It's useful. It's powerful. Need I continue?
