Robert Scoble states on his blog, "I'm seeing a resurgance in VB.NET stuff lately. There are many developers, both inside and outside of Microsoft, who like VB.NET a lot." :-D He also states "I hear the VB.NET team will have a few things to talk about at the PDC in October as well. Hope to finally put the "VB is dead" myth to bed."
I can't wait to hear what's coming from the VB.NET team... (hint)(hint) ;-) Keep up the great work guys.
