Remember that VB.NET and C# are .NET compliant languages. Aside from a very few differences between what each language can do, there is little reason that I or the other developers can switch between the languages. We are writing .NET code using .NET classes which is the same regardless of the language syntax. Switching between those languages (for me at least) is pretty simple because it's just a simple change of syntax. Frankly I don't want to work with, nor would I hire a programmer who can't figure out how to write in either language in the .NET environment. If they know the .NET framework well enough to perform their tasks sufficiently, then I'm happy. Seeing as most people learn (real) programming in C or C++, they will be capable of figuring out .NET regardless of the language. That's the beauty of the CLR.
