The war of the languages. Some people like c#, others like VB. Yes, there are others like, Ruby, C++, Python, Java, PHP ... but more on the lines of .Net languages, transcoding code examples becomes a bit of a headache.
Personally, I have issues reading VB. I don't know the syntax really so it is almost like pig latin to me. Asking a few friends along with attempting to track down a transcoder and I found an amazing free, translator from vb.net to c#.net (and back again) on Carlos Aguilar Mares's website. When searching for code examples / samples, most will be only in one language, this may help you understand how stuff was coded in your language of choice. This is one of those tool I believe should be in any developer's back pocket. That and Lutz Roeder's reflector.
