Looking at the Silverlight examples (CoverflowConfiguration for example), for some obscure reason you seem to have deferred to c# in spite of the fact that there are reportedly many more VB programmers than those using the syntactically-challenged {{C;}{#};};}}};  (probably for fairly obvious reasons).
Would you perhaps consider reversing your policy? 

I know very few, if any, (actually, not one), VB programers who would ever consider writing in anything other than the far more coherent and far better structured Visual Basic?

Just thought I'd ask................

Hi Nick Chance,

We try to support and provide both C# and VB.NET examples, help and articles without discriminating by any means on VB developers. The example you refer to is a mistake that we will resolve in future. We are currently working on improving our help that will feature C# as much as VB.NET code. I understand your dissatisfaction with our VB.NET support, but I can assure you that it will change pretty soon. Thank you for contacting us and we look forward to receiving other valuable feedback from you.

Best wishes,
Hristo Borisov

I'd like to endorse Nick's comments.
I learned C on Unix in the 80's, then graduated to C++ in the 90's, however when I discovered VB, I have never looked back.
Whilst C# is undoubtedly better than C++, it is not as easy to use, and harder to learn for younger/inexperienced colleagues, than VB.Net.

Please do not think that all .Net programmers should be using C#, because in my business computing world, all of the business functionality is written in as high a level language as possible i.e. VB.Net, which is easier to write and maintain than C# or C++.

Please therefore provide VB examples as 'first class citizens' rather than second class which seems to be the case at present.

This is is no way critical of your products, which are excellent.

Regards, Garry.
