would anyone have any in mind?

"Large" companies probably don't use QuickBooks. Just a guess that IBM and US Steel probably have something a bit... 'more'... if you know what I mean.

Not to mention I doubt Quickbooks was written in VB.net <laugh>

Why can't you just use Quickbooks?

tlhIn`toq , sir,
i did not mean that Quickbooks was made in vb, what i meant was an application created in vb.net that is as "popular" as Quickbooks.
i am also not going to use any software, i am just looking for "popular" software made in vb.net.
thanks for you reply though.

:) I'm really not sure many people know what their applications were developed in.

The technology used to implement an application is unknown to the end user... unless that end user is missing a component that the application uses (like a Java runtime environment version, or a .NET framework version...but even in this case the user still won't know if C# or VB.NET was used...)

it seems that some keep misunderstanding my question.
so to make it simpler, do any of you know of any vb.net applications that are "popular" or being used by any company or advertised as a great software? even those that have received recognition?

Heheh... I can't help it: My Software :whistling:

Seriously though, we can't answer your question because we have no way of knowing what language was used to implement programs that we haven't implemented ourselves.

The only programs that we know for sure have been implemented with VB.NET are the ones that we have worked on!

The problem is, we end users dont know what language create the product unless if we were told so or an error message. So we dont know what is in those apps back and we mostly dont care..... Unless if it is an open source application or an organization application which we know because it is known in orgs.
So simply what we can say is that there are many applications used in organizations and of different languages and different frameworks.

Personal experience for me is that most retail type solutions are simply not written in VB.NET.

You will find that a lot of "in-house" applications are written in VB.NET for numerous companies. And under breach of current and prior contracts I could name a few, but lets not go there...

That may be your personal belief jonkettle.
For me, it's the opposite.

All of our retail solutions are written in VB.NET
As a company we decided to use this syntax for development purposes.

At home (my "in-house" personal projects) I use C# just to keep familiar with that syntax.

Really these languages are just a means to access the same .NET libraries with some "flavour" differences that seem better in one language over another. You can still accomplish the same things because they use the same framework.

What about the Roslyn CTP vb.net Compiler is written in vb.net.
