Arc vs Visual Basic: What are the differences?

What is Arc? A dialect of the Lisp programming language developed by Paul Graham and Robert Morris. Arc is designed for exploratory programming: the kind where you decide what to write by writing it. A good medium for exploratory programming is one that makes programs brief and malleable, so that's what we've aimed for. This is a medium for sketching software.

What is Visual Basic? Modern, high-level, multi-paradigm, general-purpose programming language for building apps using Visual Studio and the .NET Framework. Visual Basic is derived from BASIC and enables the rapid application development (RAD) of graphical user interface (GUI) applications, access to databases using Data Access Objects, Remote Data Objects, or ActiveX Data Objects, and creation of ActiveX controls and objects.

Arc and Visual Basic can be categorized as "Languages" tools.

Microsoft, XMLi5 Ltd., and Universidade CEUMA are some of the popular companies that use Visual Basic, whereas Arc is used by Helpful, Cask, and Icalia Labs. Visual Basic has a broader approval, being mentioned in 10 company stacks & 26 developers stacks; compared to Arc, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.
