Hi,

Just to clarify. By VB6 and Vb.Net i meant those, dedicated developers 
who started their career with VB and ended up with Vb.Net. MSFT should 
support keeping their old establishment in mind. Majority of VB6 
developers had no other option but to go with Vb.Net

MSFT created C#, just to attract Java community, but infact it did not 
happen.
Java was scared of Ruby and hence jRuby appeared. MS waked up a bit 
later and now we have IronRuby.

Its no wonder that Ruby is here to stay for longer time. Its important 
to see, how MSFT treats this new baby.
