I could see an argument for C# maybe but not VisualBasic. I like Python best but C# programs do usually run faster and the harder type checking is helpful most of the time. I wish C# had real decorators, had a unlimited lossless big number class with its existing number classes in a logical hierarchy under it, had a standard epochs-based date time class, had a standard way to flag any variable as un-nullable, had a standard way of defining order-aware structures for import/export, had a standard way of creating event logged data, and had events that weren't a bit wonky and mysterious. It'd be nice if there was a way to create a subprocess that acted as its own program with its own memory, disk permissions, etc but I can't say I've seen any other language get that right either. At least VB essentially maps all the same underpinnings as C#
.. just not as well and using weird terminology and syntax. Python has its own unique syntax but it's clean and uses pretty standard terminology.
