Boxing And Unboxing

Namespace: WIN_COM_API
Boxing referes to the .Net concept of converting a Value Type to a Reference Type. Unboxing woulkd be the reciprocal case.
Are reference types and value types, boxing and unboxing .Net concepts, or are they more specific to C#. For example, do you have a string reference type in VB.Net, or do you just have a String Variable?
