Nobody uses VB

Sorry, but many of us supporting live environments have tens of thousands of lines of legacy code written in VB. Even though the shop that I am in is now (officially) a C# environment, the legacy means that most of my work is still in VB. I expect that that is true of many CPers in many locations.

Python is this week's Perl / PHP - OK for writing pretty pages on a browser; but will be supplanted by some newer flavour-of-the-week language. Meanwhile, VB / Java etc will still be running most closed environments.
