The VB.NET versus C# decision process

 A while ago I wrote about the decision that many people face when starting to consider a migration from Visual Basic 6.0 to the .NET platform: choosing the target language, mainly between VB.NET and C#. Today I found a great post by John Fuex on that subject, not inciting the war between both trenches but instead describing the process he and his company went through to solve the C# versus .NET dilemma. He basically used the following criteria to qualify each language: Functionality, Learning Curve, Existing Code, Developer Preferences, “Street Cred” (for both the developers and products), and Recruiting. But in the end it reinforces the notion that there’s not a standard solution, so the selection should always be made case by case.
