I can’t answer the question for others, but I can offer a perspective which I feel is often overlooked. The move from Visual Basic to VB.NET was so drastic for some that they just could not, or would not, make the transition. A number who moved to VB.NET quickly switched to C# and left Basic in the dust. So what was really going on here ? Was Visual Basic so poorly designed it just had to be left behind? Was the managed language approach so superior that Visual Basic was just obsolete?

Very well thought of and written and thought provoking, for a lot of programmers or even for organizations, switching from language to language is an instinct of survival.
