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.
