    When I was doing my A Levels we done pascal and VB

    Both were ran inside a virtual machine with vanilla XP installed with just administrator.

    every logon reset the VHDs so there was never an issue apart from saving work and taking it in and out of the virtual machine.

    We want to add Java to our list using NetBeans, does anyone see any security issues with this as it uses .jar files and runs in its own virtual machine? Otherwise we will have to stick it inside the Virtual machine.

    Realize this may be controversial but:

    Teach 'em C or C++, a proper language that they can take to an employer. Heck even C# if you have to, still much preferred to VB or mere high level interpreted languages such as Java. It will really help to inspire those with potential and weed out those without passion.

    Just my thoughts!

    I am currently doing AS Computing (WJEC) using VB 2008 EE on which every computing student has their own seperate, isolated VM. Quite funny story about how the VMs came about: a previous student wrote a program which someone got them access into the principal's email account and sent a college-wide email saying college was shut the next day.
