Are you taking about using VBscript for backend ASP stuff or for client side

Macs don't do VB script, and neither does *nix. (afaik)

I don't think Netscape does either.

There's one reason to not use it for client side scripting.

Backend wise, I don't know what the implications would be.  If you know JS
already, and would have to learn VBS, there's a reason.  I don't think VBS
gives you any more power in ASP than JS.
