A) a kludgy grammar.

B) forcing you to explicitly do things that should be implicit like implementing a method of an interface through a public method, or comparing value types and reference types without worrying about "Is" vs. "="


I will definitely agree that VB's syntax is kludgy in some areas such as lambda and anonymous functions. On the other hand, being forced to be explicitly identify interfaces has a lot of benefit when verifying the correctness of software. Ambiguity is the enemy of correctness.
