i too can switch back and forth very easily, yeah the occasional syntax leak over in both directions occur, but that simply boils down to me not paying attention.

in a given day and all at the same time i am working on apps using several languages (each a seperate app) for example:

PHP, C#, VB.NET, C++ at any given moment. and generally i have no real issues with any of them.

it is not the language at fault, it is the fault of the developer for blaming the language.

Plus just remember this (and this meant for all the C# only fan boys);

if it was not for VB.NET C# would NOT i repeat NOT exist at all. So give it the respect it deserves as being one of the parent languages of C#.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
