The one thing I got out of VB: the idea of having two different division operators. One for integer division, and one for floating-point division. It seems like a really Perlish idea to me. Although it also seems to me that VB's type system ought to be able to tell if you're assigning to a float or to an int and Do the Right Thing. It doesn't make sense in even a nominially static typed language like VB, though it would fit right in with Perl.
