Intellisense Everywhere in VB 9 (and a small bug)

One of the features the CSharp guys have had for quite a while is Intellisense everywhere.  Want to create a private variable?  Just start typing private and hit the tab key as soon as the word is highlighted.  This, combined with code snippets have made coding in CSharp a bit faster than coding in VB.

What about the VB guys?

Sorry.  All the VB guys got was the ability to see methods an properties hanging off of their objects.  They have had to type out  the whole word for things like public, private, dim and class. 

Until now.  Watch the following video to see the new Intellisense for VB 2008 in action.
