hmmm... can't tell you anything about vb, except that I'd not waste my time with it in .net.  C#  (C Sharp) is absolutely wonderful... vb is different enough that it's close to relearning everything, might as well move to C#.

Just my opinion... if you are up for C#, my favorite website is csharp-corner.com

I've also noticed that planetsourcecode.com has some code up there in .net... can't vouch for the quality.

Good luck to you.

VB.Net is a reeducation but is nothing compared to learning C#.  C# was made for Java developers who want to switch over.  Incase you haven't heard with .Net everything goes to MSIL in the end so the language you work with won't be that important.

Shane,

True enough... but should you take the time to look at C#, I believe that you'll find it much more intuitive than VB.Net.  The company I worked for opted to go with C# over VB in early BETA because... in their opinion... the VB IDE was a bit flakey.

True enough that all of the code gets jit comiled into IL, so in theory there should be no performance difference, though that is a function of the jit compiler.

C# really isn't that hard to learn, and I believe (only my opinion here) that it's going to receive the highest level of attention and support.  It really is a fantastic language.

On other consideration... as of about 6 months ago (can't speak for now because I've kinda been closed in my office coding) the body of sample code for C# dwarfed that which was available for VB.NET

Anyway, just my 2 cents worth.
