VB.Net is the bestest

I was happily coding away in VB.Net today (grrr) when I noticed a little weirdity in the intellisense popup.


Documentation says:

The NotOverridable modifier defines a method of a base class that cannot be overridden in derived classes. All methods are NotOverridable unless marked with the Overridable modifier. You can use the NotOverridable modifier when you do not want to allow an overridden method to be overridden again in a derived class.

Makes C++ look simple.

    It takes an expert programmer to program VB. Stick to C# or Java with the other trainables.

    VB is harder than it is cracked up to be.

    OK, so it’s default for your enumerations is NotOverridable — the equivalent of Java “final”. Maybe a bit disappointing, if you desire ultimate flexibility, but understandable, given their desire to simplify the language and usage.

    Were you planning on subclassing ‘ColorEnum’?

  1. I think you’ll find that C# is more betterer than what VB.NET is
