Why do VB code snippets come before C# in MSDN?

    Hey MSDN team, why do the VB code snippets come before the C# and C++ samples? Is it something like this:

    1. Easy - VB
    2. Difficult - C#
    3. Expert - C++

    Just curious...

    You forgot JScript - that comes between 1 and 2.

    I think it is because they need more room at the bottom for the c egos.

    JScript comes at the bottom of mine, not sure if that's suppose to mean something (maybe Knute can analyse that for me)...

    I would like to know if there is a way to only show one language? (ie just show c#)?

    My *guess* is this

    1. Easy - VB(.Net)
    2. Difficult - C#
    3. Expert - C++

    If you are learning C++ or C# for instance you might have trouble understanding the example for the language your learning, so you could use VB.Net to help you out.

    Some articles on MSDN only have C# or C++. I understand some C++ stuff won't work with VB, but C# should, right?
