Default Differences between C#.net and VB.net

Hi there, I'm new to this forum, so excuses me if my answer is somewhere out here and I didn't see it.

I know about programming in vb.net and I need to program in C# now. I recently downloaded the express edition of C# and looked for the default types of loop and decision-statements (if/switch/while etc), arrays and variable declaration in comparison to vb.net.

Given the fact that both languages use the .net system, are there any differences between the too languages next to the syntax? What can I do more or better in C#.net than in vb.net?

Many thanx in advance,

A few minor errors and omissions in that table, but overall very very good!
