    You do realise that unmanaged compilers for dofferent languages also all
    generate "pretty much the same code that runs as pretty much the same speed"
    right?. VB was just one dialect of BASIC...

    ..NET has good multi-language support. Certainly better than comparable
    platforms.

    Re: What are the Advantages of VB.NET?

    These guys (1) need to know we (2) won't stand for this any longer.

    Suggestions for these two references?
    How about
    (1)=Microsoft, (2)=Linux users
    or
    (1)=People who moved to .NET, (2)=People who can't move because they don't
    understand it

    Anyone else?

    Cheers,
    Jason

    Coupled with the fact that there really is no measurable advantage to using
    VB.Net over say C# one then logically will turn to the disadvantages associated
    with VB.Net and the history of VB. The information Dan provides is sound
    and reasonable to consider when thinking of making an investment in VB.Net.

    It makes perfect sense to have posted that link.
