I wanted to react to Dennis's post, but as he disabled comments to his post I created my own. Personally, I don't prefer Vb.Net over C# or vice-versa. Both languages have their advantages and when Whidbey comes along, a lot of features will be identical in both languages. The company I work for prefers to use C#, but I've also used Vb.Net when our clients asked me to.
Dennis changed his namespace and then had to change all his code. He was annoyed by this. But I had to do the same thing yesterday in my C# project. It did not automagically change the references I made in the code. And guess what, had to open all those files myself to make the changes, just like VB.Net. It's DevStudio being the annoying bit here. And I think it's correct that you make these changes manually. If DevStudio did this, then I would be really annoyed. I was able to change all references to my namespaces with one simple action though: Hold the Ctrl and Shift keys and press H. A replace window shows and you can select Entire solution. Worked fine for me.
I love this in C#:
string s = (Value ? “True“ : “False“);
But I hate that this is missing:
.Item("Active") = True
And there are more things like that. So I don't really care which language I have to use. Bottom line is that they both use the .Net Framework anyway. And in the project I work on now I used both. (See this post)
I did NOT disable comments, so if you want to add your 2 cents be my guest.
