I've joined the VB team at Tech-Ed this week.  Quite fun!  The Team features (full development life cycle) in Whidbey were announced this week and there's a ton of excitement around them.  Also quite a bit of talk so far about the new Data Sources features as well as the classical VB vs. C# vs. C++ religious debate.  I'm at the VB.NET 2005 booth and the VB cabanna so come look me up if you're here & you want to talk data!  - Tim Laverty, Program Manager VS Data
