"Visual Basic should become a hostable language that can be easily used to do application scripting, akin to what you could do with VBScript and VBA," Vick wrote.
There are many, many, things this means for VB that will unfold over the coming months, but one of the most important ones is that it will enable simple interoperability between Visual Basic and the other dynamic languages on.NET like Ruby, Python, and JScript." top

She has bought a few games from local stores but she hasn't done any research on the games prior to buying them (eg, looking up reviews), and most have been really boring or buggy and her students won't touch them. I've done a lot of searching online and haven't been able to find any good information about games specifically targetted for kids aged 6 to 12. Do any of you slashdotters know of some good (Windows-based) childrens games or a page with educational game reviews?"
