Actually I know a company that switched their new state of the art app from C to VB simply because C was more complicated and more involved in the dev stage. Now that they have released it and it is god awful SLOW - no one wants to use their new toy. Another lesson learned. Dev time/money is only ONE of the factors you take into account when creating an application. When it becomes the end all be all of the decision, it's likely the end product simply won't be up to snuff.See my previous comment. Nobody in their right mind would write a complete application in VB or another "faster" language unless it's just a prototype.
