I wouldn't call VB terrible. To make a gui dialog type simple 
application, I am yet to find a more intuitive method than VB which 
showme the window in no time. If the application become more 
complicate I switch to C to avoid the painful language; but there are 
many occasions that I just like a tool like VB which can make an 
program in a few minutes and make my wife happy.

VB for linux? Not the slightest idea.

However, I am currently thinking on making some visual tools like VB 
in linux to facilitate writing simple GUI programs, probably in 
python. Anyone know something similar or have suggestions?
