Programming languages don't differ in what they can do, but in what they make easy. I like Perl because I find it makes a wide range of tasks very easy. However, there will always be something that Perl just isn't good at and nothing you or me can do will change that, short of redeveloping it into a completely new language.

I haven't learned the .NET version, but I've found regular VB to be good at doing one thing: make a quick and dirty GUI that you never intend to run outside a Win32 system. With .NET, you may or may not be able to use it on other systems via Mono (a Free Software .NET runtime), but this isn't assured. I've also heard that in VB.NET, there are a lot of features that make it look more like C# and that many people are skipping the VB bits entirely and going straight for C#.
