Is anybody using VB.NET?

Or is C# the clear leader, in terms of market share?

There are still plenty of people using VB .NET. I get lots of e-mail regarding VB .NET books and articles.

I am seeing more and more people switching between the two languages from project to project, though.

To be honest I use both depending on what programmers will have to support the program afterwards. Theres little point writing C# if everyone in the company understands VB and little point writing in if the programmers understand C++ or Java.

I'm actually starting to see companies use both with in the presentation layer (easy to understand for asp programmers) with all the backend stuff done in C# (instead of  C++ com components).
