Well that does generalize things a little bit too much.. Well with .NET I think there is not much of a difference between the VB.NET and the C# developer....

Wesner Moise

The difference between VB.NET and C# currently is somewhat minimal; however, that is due to integration with CLR. VB.NET is still somewhat lax with optimizations in many places, so there are some performance hits: Boolean to int conversions, And/Or shortcircuiting, Lazy Evaluation, Checked arithmentic, etc.

All the languages will begin to diverge significantly with Whidbey, closer to the typical user.

The attempt to use personas is to focus the product on the typical type of customer; this makes the product more focused and improves the design. Instead of building for all types and satisfying none.

There are experts that use VB and there are non-CS Types that use the C#. We don't deny they exist; we don't zero in on those developers, when we design software.
