Calling another form from a click button in VB.NET

On a click button, I am trying to open another form. In VB6, the code was simply open form2, but it's not the same way in .NET. What is the best way to call another form from the click of a button in VB.NET?
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
                          ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _
                          Handles Button1.Click
    ' Show the form as a modaless window.
    Dim x As Form2 = New Form2
End Sub

Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
                          ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _
                          Handles Button2.Click
    ' Show this form as a dialog.
    Dim x As Form3 = New Form3
End Sub
