        How long we need to wait. .net core now fully support vb.net...how come xamarin is not yet

        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!

        How Long is the way to supporting VB.NET. Please don't trouble us make round any more,OK?

        Please VB,stop abandoning it. You have no idea how much anger and resentment you've created by treating VB as a second class minority citizen. Microsoft, like Israel, is now an apartheid state.

        If I had to code in C#, I would have no motivation to code. It's the ugliest language I've ever used and I refuse to Press Shift 5 to 10 times per line of code.

        Without VB.NET, I would have no motivation to code.

        Please I'm begging you do this. I don't think MS takes into account the number of VB developers leaving MS due to ur single dimension economic/demand driven decisions. You killed VB by giving preferential treatment to C# & then u doubled and tripled down on that strategy.

        Xamarin has been a disappointment. More important is the news that Windows 10 for PC – the full desktop version – is coming to mobile ARM processors in 2017.

        Users will be able to install any x86 Win32 app – unmodified – from any source, no repackaging as UWP or delivery via the Windows Store required. The apps are not sandboxed and they will have full access to the OS.
        Microsoft demoed a device easily running the full Adobe Photoshop app along with Microsoft Office.

        Good news for VB6 programming

        Please add vb.net support - My company has too many vb.net assets to change to c#. If Xamarin does not support it, we will probably just go native development which I don't want.

        I am a professional vb.net software developer. over 25 years experience. I know how to code c#, but intentionally choose not to. I can't find a single valid argument to switch and we won't entertain using Xamarin unless it supports VB.NET... period.
