what is your career? Some languages are good for certain careers, some others good for other careers.

the (game) industry is now using C++. C# is the closest to C++, so if I were you, I chose C#.




My compiler generates one error message: "does not compile."

you asked for all opinions, and then mentioned "industry". if you''re looking for the former:

keep in mind that ".net" also refers to .net framework, which is mostly the same no matter what language you use it from.

considering that c# and vb.net are fully interoperable, it doesn''t really matter which you use. both compile to the same bytecode and are executed by the same runtime. with .net, it looks like you can pick the language you like more, as opposed to the language someone else likes more.

ms seems to like c# more ("power of c++ and ease of use of vb").

if you know some c or c++, c# will be easier to get into. same for basic/vb and vb.net, respectively.

Forget VB - 2nd class citizen. Not now (well, just a little), but with .NET 2.0 - well, you definitly dont want VB there.
