I would agree that switching to C# is good manly because it weeds out ‘mort’ style programmers. Personally, I write in VB.NET manly because right now the VB.NET 2003 IDE is better(Manly due to the code compellation). But when I code using the 2005 beta I use C# because the IDE’s are now at the same level. Most programmers shouldn’t have a problem switching between the two.
