      Actually there is one big difference - the community. The cool tools - refactoring tools, code analysis tools like SmallWorlds, etc... all seem to be released for C#. Unfortunately the stigma with VB - is for dummies and C-like languages is for heroes is still around.

      I actually don't like C-like syntax much, but since I've spent so much of my life in C/C++/Java it's become natural. So I prefer to C# to VB. I never used VB much (I did a bit with VB6 and found it not as bad as rumored) otherwise my basic is remembered from Tandy and BBC Basic - which isn't much like VB.

      It really depends on the team. If they are used to C-like languages they should use C#, if they like VB they should use that. The languages seem to be pretty much the same anyway - just a matter of syntactic style - and neither of them is Smalltalk :-(
