It's purely personal preference. They both do exactly the same thing, so it is generally a case of picking which syntax you prefer.

Like carl_tawn already mentioned: personal preference

I go with c#.

- It is developed purely as an OOP language, whereas, vb.nety was a product of .net.
there are many other reasons why i chose c# over vb.

You can also have a look at the side by side comparison here.

Like others, a lot of it is personal preference. The rest depends on what you want to build, if one of the languages has a benefit over the other in that area.  I prefer VB because it was focussed on rapid application development. Of course, it at least used to be that C# developers made more money.

10 reasons C# is better than VB.NET: - At least half of the resons given in that link are no longer true and are available in vb.net since VS 2005. carl_tawn's comment is on the money it depends which syntax you prefer/are used to. I have to code in both and find it easy to switch between the two.

Although vb.net gets my vote just for the WITH keyword saves tons of typing.

Good question! I'd put it this way:

I was (and is :)) C# developer but currently I work mostly in VB. An this does not make me happy - I prefer C#, I used to it! So many of my colleagues - they are professional s in C#, and here and there they cry and complain and ... The miss C#! :)

Also, I know other people who came to C# from VB. It looks like they do not miss VB and became C# guys forever :)

With all my respect to jacko72 - I don't like 'WITH'. In some cases it saves typing. But many times I encounterd code that didn't fit a screen - and I coudn't see "with what ?" !!!

There is even worse problem why 'WIT' is bad - debugging. In VB - try make right click and add a variable from within a WITH block to a watch window - it does not work.

This is just my private opinion, VB fans - don't shoot me! :)
