Propriety software as quality of life issue

I'm being interviewed for a job as a VB.NET programmer. I have a good chance of getting it, despite all my past experience being with Java/Perl/Python/C. I'm somewhat of an Open Source ideologue, and hate the idea of using Microsoft technologies, which strike me as not only technically inferior and frustrating to work with, but on the wrong side of history. I'm looking for other options, but assuming they don't come through before I'm given an offer will I regret taking it? Doesn't Microsoft itself consider VB deprecated? To what extent are the other .NET languages (C#) better? [more inside]
