I am getting really tired and fed up with all the bloatware and stuff that MS is forcing on us programmers in VB.
I develop shareware as a hobby and I want something that is going to allow me to do the following:
1. Develop Windows Applications
2. Be able to connect to databases
3. Modern Graphics & Sound
4. Use 3rd Party Dll's
6. Easy to learn
8. Compact in executable size
9. Generate stand-alone exe's.
11. Supported well
12. Not very expensive
Does this sound like a job for SmallTalk or do I need to keep looking?
Thanks in advance,
