That's a bit harsh. The Visual Basic compiler is written in Visual Basic, as is a substantial fraction of the world's banking system.
It is a little harsh but not entirely untrue. Visual Basic 6 had its little spotlight moment but I think it is safe to say that VB6 is dying and C# has long since replaced it. Likely the largest single use of VB-style syntax at the moment is to write Excel macros, and nobody is hiring for that within its own right.
As much as I admire Visual Basic for its history, I think it has created a future which it cannot be apart of. There is no space for VB.net, just JS, C++, and C#.
