@ScanIAm: society didnt pay for my vb.net to c#.net switch, why should I pay for another guy for a different switch?

Society didn't eliminate the concept of computer programming. You'd be singing a completely different tune had that been the case.

It's your own responsibility to keep your market value up, not societies.

If a society bears no responsibility to help the individual adapt, why have a society at all?
