Have any of you checked out Soma's blog ?  For those of you who don't know Soma, he's the VP who owns all of developer tools and sets direction for the development teams.  I'm psyched that he's joined the blogosphere and started to tell us what he's thinking about.  In this case, he was writing about the future of Visual Basic - a topic obviously near and dear to my heart.  Let me know what you think after you take a look at his post.
