C# General Programming Questions

Going from VB5 - VB6 and over last few years VB.NET I feel its time for me to learn a new programming language.  First off, I need to know if C# is an actual .NET language, and secondly, some help understanding the differences in the code.   Any examples, basically is what I am after, and what are the advantages of going from VB.NET to C#?  I see a lot of employers would rather have C# programmers than VB.NET developers.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

scroll past the C# Vs Java for the information relevant to you, but its all good!

this is more what your looking for i think... C# Vs VB

C# is pure .Net, in so far as without .net, it probably wouldnt exist at all.

for tutorials, the Code Project is always one of my favourite sites... here you go:
