I suggest you ...

Rename VB.NET to B#

There are still confusions when talking about Visual Basic whether you mean VB6, VBA or Visual Basic .NET.
Today, VB.NET is as powerful as C# and deserves a powerful name. I think it would benefit alot if the connection to the "old times" of VB6 and VBA are broken and VB.NET becomes republished with a shiny new name. I am talking of the following, which happens to me everytime:
[Alice] Hey, what do you code?
[Me] I love VB.NET
[Alice] (looks irritated) Oh, I also used to do VBA/VB6 many many years ago
[Me] No, VB.NET is C# with readable syntax
[Alice] I like C#

P.S.: There is another suggestion, which I think means the same but got completely misunderstood (read the comments here[1])
[1] Rename Visual Basic to B# and Support B# With Absolute Parity
