Stop everything and check out the VB9 language futures at :
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/future/

there's even an example compiler you can run with the Beta of VS.NET 2005 !!

So make sure you check out the LINQ docuement then the DLINQ and XLINQ ones as well.. oh and of course the VB 9.0 one too smile

My favourite has got to be the tight integration of XML with VB.  (note C# does NOT have this)
Here's an example from the LINQ document :

Dim x = <People>
           Select <Person Age=(p.Age) >p.Name</Person> _
           From p In people _
           Where p.CanCode
        </People>
