Since all clients in my company are Windows and I already know VB, it is by
far the most logical choice for a desktop application.

But it doesn't necessarily mean MS only... granted the development tools
gear towards it.  That is the one advantage of SOAP and XML.  It can handle,
theoretically, the distributed environment for non MS hosts and it is not
locking myself into MS technology.

As for CORBA in VB, I think you need to use a DCOM to Corba bridge...
atleast that is what I heard.
