Now the entire Windows Live team says f*ck you VB

Posted Wed, Mar 5 2008 10:17 by bill

Yesterday I reported how the Windows Live Search team posted samples in 5 different languages, but not VB.  Well today the Live team has posted their Live ID Web Authentication SDK, which boasts :

This release includes a sample application for each of six different programming languages: ASP.NET, Java, Perl, PHP, Python, and Ruby.

But when they say ASP.NET, they actually mean C#.  Yes Microsoft can release samples in six different languages just as long as none of them are VB.  (can you say "the n word" ?)

Dude the truth should be told. VB is losing its mainstream appeal.

It is indeed sad that a language that you (and I) have become very good at be sidelined. I recently moved to C# and this has opened up a lot of opportunities for me.

Thats the way of the world Adapt or Die !

Bill there is a great online tool from developer fusion that convets from c# to vb.net:

If you do make the change to C#, i did, then you must use resharper from Jetbrains or you will feel like your going back in time:
