Nice flame war! Laugh | :laugh: A nice reminder of the VB shaming that exists here. Frown | :(

As a solo developer the choice between C# and VB is dependent on one thing only: Which one am I the most productive in? it all boils down to the same MSIL anyway and my clients don't care.

Now, back to the VB shaming. (since it's Saturday) It seems that haters will hate. The same old weak arguments regurgitated to prove why their beloved C# is superior and VB is trash and not worthy for serious work...or that programmers who prefer (or are stuck with) VB are inferior and should be scorned and ridiculed.

I think as a community, we can do better than to get all evangelical about something so petty. I don't have a dog in this fight...I like them both equally...just a tool to get a job done.
