The "Visual" in VB is about GUI programming. I'm not surprised that you 
find more standard terminology in a language geared around that kind of 
thing.

Ruby has many options for GUIs, none of them are built in (I don't count 
Tk as "built-in"), and many of them written in other languages. I agree 
with your basic definition of Combo Box and List Box, but there are many 
variations and many people using / writing them who don't always use the 
exact same terminology.
