    VB is just a programming language. With the .NET version of VB, you can create pretty much any application that you can in any other language. Client/Desktop (WPF/WinForms), Server (ASP.NET), Web (Silverlight 2.0), etc. all support VB along with C#.

    Great, now even Kirupa is { facebooking | twittering }

    I use VB... (But know most of the C# equivalents)... and yep the only disadvantage I've seen is that its annoying switching back and forth between other languages (syntax).

    The only time your going to use the syntax is VB (or in Excel which uses VB).

    Other than that kirupa answered the rest.

    IMO there are no Advantages or Disadvantages to VB other than there are more tutorials online for C#.
