am new to programming, and i wish to know few things. will VB.NET let me program anything i need and why most games use c++ and not other languages.

last question if i want to make program that acts like MIRC but for LAN computers. what experience do i need to learn beside VB.NET what other things i need to learn to be able to do so.

i want to make program for like 50 computers they send request of files to like 3-4 computers. the screen for the 3-4 computers would be like the pic below, each number represent a number for the office of the requestor. when one of the 50 computers send an order the circle in the icons blinks so that the workers at the 3-4 computers can know if any orders are been received.

Moved to more appropriate forum.

See my signature for some VB.NET tutorials. I'm not sure about the 2005 version but the 2003 101 samples contains a Sockets example that uses a client/server chat application. Here's another tutorial that deals specifically with games programming.
