    Hi
    Yes, as much as it has always been.
    It may depend somewhat on the purpose it is being used for. For example, industry tends to use other languages rather than VB.NET.

    Hi @jose de jesus ,
    Yes, like they said in the article below.

    Can anyone in simple words explain if we can continue feel comfortable with VB.NET ?

    Shall we forget and start turning to c#?

    The .NET team didn't seem to think so, ending its announcement with: "Visual Basic is a great language and a productive development environment. The future of Visual Basic will include both .NET Framework and .NET Core and will focus on stability, the application types listed above, and compatibility between the .NET Core and .NET Framework versions of Visual Basic."

    Microsoft: 'We Do Not Plan to Evolve Visual Basic as a Language'
    Visual Basic support planned for .NET 5.0
    Best Regards.
