If you look about the internets you can find VB6 for...ahem, free!
Now why would I suggest something thats considered outdated?
1. Its very easy to learn. It free's you up by doing the boring stuff for you leaving you to concentrate on the interesting stuff.
2. Its very powerful, there's not much you cant do with it, and imo thats why MS killed it off, coz they wanted to sell there new stuff!
3. You can do pretty much anything in vb6, but some of it not easily, therefore forcing you to learn.
However, if you intend developing something you intend to sell then dont use vb.
I think Java would be the way to go, but vb will give you a good start.
