In the big scheme of things, there's very little difference between C# and VB.NET. The important thing in the .NET world is the Base Class Library (BCL). That's the heart of .NET and neither language is anything without them. If I had to pin it down to a number I'd say there's only a 2% difference between the languages. I personally swap between the languages on different projects. I guess it all comes down to if you like putting semicolons at the end of your source lines. Just pick whichever feels more comfortable to you and have fun!
