Windows Live team continues insults at VB'ers ...

After my post about the first set of insults from the Windows Live team and the Search API samples, it was nice to see some VB samples released.  Sadly though they were just the C# samples run through an automated tool.  I mean look at this bullshit code from them :


Select Case searchFlagsValue
       Case 0
           .Flags = SearchFlags.None
           Exit Select
       Case 1
           .Flags = SearchFlags.MarkQueryWords
           Exit Select



The Exit Select is just utter crap. The only reason it's there is because the c# code uses break statements inside a switch block and that's what their machine translation mapped to Exit Select. It shows an incredible ignorance of VB, and demonstrates yet again complete contempt for the VB audience.

To add insult to insult, they also decided not to include the Windows.Forms sample for VB.
