Why .NET for VFP developers? C# advantages: VB.Net: Closing Comments:
I'd like to know why you've listed case sensitivity as a C# advantage, but that VB not being case sensitive is a VB advantage. Can't have your cake and eat it too. Personally, I prefer C# to VB, and I didn't like the case sensitivity of C#, but once you get used to it I guess it's no big deal. -- Bonnie Berent

Both approaches are advantagous to programmers with different backgrounds and project requirements. Another example would be unsafe code. You can make the case that unsafe code is an advantage of C#, but you could also say that VB.NET has the advantage because you can only write safe code with it. It depends on what you know, and what you need to get done with the language that make the features a plus or a minus. -- Mike Helland
