Difference is huge, its really another language rather than an upgrade to VB6.

I would advise to start on .NET rather than learn VB6.

The big thing you will be missing out on is that companies using VB.NET have probably got lots of code written in VB6, meaning that it will be a distinct advantage if you can maintain the current VB6 code as well as develop using VB.NET.

Also, an understanding of VB6 will probably help you with VB6/vb.NET interoperability.

Hope that helps :D
