Does anybody do open source programming in Visual Basic .NET?

I like the idea of open source programming, because its an opportunity to learn, and get involved in some more complex projects that with my limited skills I would never embark on.
I noticed that most open source programming is done in other languages, and also the concept of "open" sometimes means cross-platform and that means  linux, java, etc.

I also have some interesting ideas, that it would be fun to tinker with, and see how other programmers, who are learning, or more advanced would handle it.

Is anyone interested in this? Are there any visual basic based open source groups?

That would be useful in developing an application using VB.NET that would be cross-platform. However I was mainly looking for open source projects in VB.NET.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Yes I think that is what I'm looking for but the website is having issues. The link didn't work for me.

Unfortunately the link did not work, but I believe this is the best possible answer. Hopefully soon the page will be up and running.

I'm not sure why you had/have problems with it, but I just accessed it without any hassle.
Anyway, here you have some other links to other sites that might interest you:
http://www.codeplex.com/
http://www.2enetworx.com/dev/projects/index.asp
http://www.theserverside.net/news/thread.tss?thread_id=28218
But bear in mind that the first one seems to be "the" place for .NET open source projects.
Good luck!
