In the past this type of post would have gotten my dander up a little, but (in case you haven't noticed), my first project over at ASPSOFT is a C# one. I still am somewhat passionate about VB, but mainly because I recognize it as the entrance to professional programming. As Phil Haack said we need to expect more of Mort -- and all professional developers!! (In essence you're talking about Mort too). I know that the lure of the VB team is to make it easier. I would implore the VB Team to make it easier for us to write good code better.
As far as C# goes (I have been meaning to state this to the world)
No sweat! If you can write bad code in VB (like me); you can screw up C# too <grin />. Honestly I made the jump with no effort; I'm quite amazed. Evidently I knew C#... I've noticed that over the last several months I have looked at .Net Code (C# and VB.Net), and haven't really realized that I was looking at C# or VB code... it was just .Net code... Pretty cool! I'm liking the C# thing... Maybe I'll stay over on the C# side and pollute the pool <grin />
With that said...
ATTN MS! I demand that you give us C#ers some of the productivity enhancements you gave the VB guys. Specifically I want Default Windows Forms Instances! I want to design a Windows Form with the designer and only have to write "form1.show();"
