SoftMind: I still don't see the need to publish a VB
version. I think I mentioned this elsewhere in this thread or another, one factor that really plays against us is the major US retailers have a tendency not to stock and sell both versions when we do something like this. I've realy seen it happen on two dual edition books like this on ASP.NET 2.0, including one from a competitor, so even if there is equal or greater demand for a VB
version, sales will be lower because retailers won't stock it in enough stores.
Additionally, so far in the 10 days we've had the VB
code up, we've had a total of 20 downloads (that incldues 2 test downloads from me to make sure they worked). Yes, it's a little harder ti find the code, and no, since there isn't a VB
version of the book why would a VB
reader have bought it in the first place but it doesn't give proof to an overwhelming need for a VB
And finally, probably most importantly, so little of this book is really about the language. It's about the overall structure, the framework, the decisions that go into making the site and making it good. That's the value and I think that's a huge part of why this book is a best-seller. All of that is the same in either language.
