P.S.

In my view, if you are comfortable with VB.NET, then you should be comfortable with the Framework. If you can safely say that you are, then your biggest hurdle is learning the syntax. There are a few language quirks you'll have to adjust to, but they're not too rough (e.g. whitespace if often unimportant in C#, whereas in VB [pre-4.0] you have to use a line-continuation character). The biggest adjustment you may have to make is that VB is very forgiving for certain things--especially implicit conversions. Whereas the following might work in VB:

Dim x As Double = Me.TextBox1.Text

...it won't fly in C#. You must convert the text using the Convert class or one of the Parse/TryParse methods. C# expects you to clearly declare your intentions. If you are accustomed to turning on Option Explicit and Option Strict, then you probably won't have too difficult a time.

I say this as an individual who started VB.NET and then later self-learned C#  = )

Channel9 on MSDN have some excellent resources.  I found Bob Tabors C# fundamentals series to be fairly detailed whilst remaining light and fun.

Thank you all. Great feedback. For the record I find the structure quite odd indeed! Spaghetti?
