        as the Xamarin website stated in : https://www.xamarin.com/licensing
        Xamarin has relicensed the **Mono** runtime under the MIT license and has contributed the code for Mono, as well as the Xamarin SDKs for iOS and Android to the .NET Foundation.
        and the Mono website http://www.mono-project.com/docs/about-mono/languages/visualbasic
        Visual Basic.NET support in Mono is relatively new. The Visual Basic runtime has been available for Mono for a while, and with the release of Mono 1.2.3, the Visual Basic support is complete.
        then what is the laziness about adding this feature to the visual basic ?

        Please don't waste any money on VB.net. It's a lost cause and so are the devs that are still hanging on to it. The xamarin platform needs a lot more work and investing it into vb.net would just slow everyone down.

        Two requests:

        1) Change the name of VB.Net to B#. Besides being a clever play on words ("Be sharp!"), it will eliminate the misguided idea that Visual Basic .NET is somehow "basic" merely because it's easier to learn, read and maintain.

        2) Provide Xamarin and ASP.NET Core support for B# and NEVER AGAIN treat B# as a "back burner, we'll get around to supporting it someday" technology.

        When are we going to get vb.net support for xamarin....please it has been over 2 years since xamarin was acquired by Microsoft.

        VB is much easier and better than C#.
        The syntax and semantics of C# is very similar to that bull shit Java.
        Those who love.Net framework and habitual to VB, they need VB very badly to compete with the rivals in the world of mobile computing and app development.

        Think for those who has spent years coding in VB.

        If VB is added to Xamarin, it'll be a big Plus for Microsoft.

        For the love of what is good, there is absolute no excuse you are not supporting VB for this long time in Xamarin and then you say hey noone uses VB for such things so we let VB behind.

        What is the point to NOT support it? It's the same clr, the same roslyn - what is the effort?

        I firmly believe that VB.NET support would be a tremendous addition to Xamarin both for professionals & academics, and for newcomers to programming alike!
