Well, Microsoft is now support more of C# than VB. If you take a look over at Windows Phone 7, the example source codes provided by Microsoft is more of C# and hardly any VB. In fact for most XNA-related resources, they are available in C# instead of VB. I'd then assume that MS is slowly dropping their support for VB.
