I think that the CLR languages *should* have different capabilities and that programmers should be proud of their choice of language! The skinning the pretends to separate two nearly identical languages must end!"
I agree. I like the idea that each language has a special niche or reason for using it. Why do VB.NET and C# developers want them to be the same? Is this truly a curly bracket/no curly bracket debate? I hope not.
What do you all think? Should the Visual Basic .NET team be "allowed" to go off and develop super cool VB.NET only features and vice versa for the C# team? Leave a comment.
Nice discussion going on in the comments:
"I hate to say it but God himself could come down and tell all developers that C# and VB.NET are equal and there would STILL be C fill in the blank developers who wouldn't believe it. "
Join in on the fun!
