Oh, I don't know about that... I see many advetisements that say "must know C#", and some that say "must know VB". I can't remember the last time I saw one that said "must know one or the other, we don't care which."

The seemingly-never-ending consulting project I am finishing up right now is for an insurance company, and all their stuff is in VB. This is apparently because the project leader feels more comfortable in that language, and as he told me, "it's easier to find VB devs who will work for cheap." Which I guess is why the project now requires the hiring of outside consultants to fix it...
