    C/C++ is more flexible and has more power. If you rely on speed in your programs, C/C++ can muster almost ten times faster execution speed.

    If you plan to use VB.NET, it's not much of a concern, as all .NET languages have roughly the same execution speed.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    >>If you plan to use VB.NET, it's not much of a concern, as all .NET languages have roughly the same execution speed.

    So VB in .NET has sped up or C/C++ in .NET has slowed down?

    all the .net languages compile to the same intermediate language kind of like java compiles to bytecode that is run on a virtual machine so therefore all the .net languages will eventually run their code at the speed of the interpreter for the .net intermediate language.
