TypeOf VB.NET vs C#

If you are Microsoft, why do you create a function “TypeOf” that has totally differnet applications in VB and C#?

Typeof in C# is like GetType in VB, where VB uses TypeOf to see if 2 types are the same or check for interface implementation.

Kinda dumb.

  1. Because they are different languages created by different teams?

    ‘typeof’ is part of the syntax not the BCL.

    As much as I dislike VB.Net you can’t really complain about it having a different syntax than C#, if it didn’t then it would be C#.
