Anything you could do in VB, but with more elegance and half the typing....
grin

More seriously (hey, I was basically serious above!) don't believe those who
tell you "C# is only for virtual device drivers and low level programming"
etc etc. I have had a number of debates with VB programmers about this
(maybe they got sucked into VB.NET because they *thought* that was the case,
and C# was only for serious code-heads, but it doesn't make it true).

It's functionally 99.99% identical to VB. Just has a different (and in my
opinion, superior) syntax.

The MSDN team seem to hate VB.. eg their gag about semicolons:

"You can still use semicolons in VB, you just have to use the special
'semicolon prefix symbol'.."

DIM A AS INTEGER ';

Well it made me laugh.... ;)

Please do not make this discussion religious! :-)
It's functionally 99.99% identical to VB I agree, the functionality is basically the same. In my opinion it depends
on your background: if you are/were a VB6 developer, go ahead: try VB.NET.
If you know C++ or Java (grin), check out C#. At a certain point you'll look
to "the other side", so the result will be you'll know both languages!
DIM A AS INTEGER '; At least VB.NET has background compilation (in my opinion a very productive
feature) and it's will have edit-and-continue in Whidbey! :-P

I belive that is not quite the same. I had no chance helping him because I
did not know what he answere was refering to. Your comment is just trying to
flame me. I was just trying to guide him so that I could help him.I belive I
said it in a freindly tone.

It was on MSDN TV (ouch, does that make me sound sad?? I really watch that
stuff...)

Either "Lap around Longhorn" or "XAML Beyond the Basics"

http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdntv/archive.aspx

All this XAML / Avalon stuff looks really amazing. Pitty it's not going to
be available on production systems for a million years. Lornhorn's due for
release in around 2006? So Avalon and XAML arn't going to be widely deployed
until at least 2008 :( (half the machines where I work still use Win98)

I hope Microsoft write an installable XAML upgrade for XP/Win2003, that way
this cool technology might be available on a practical number of machines
before I turn grey..

I'd like to know why VB renamed some of the IL keywords:

sealed (C#) = NotInheritable (VB)
abstract (C#) = MustInherit (VB)

why, vb? why?

would hope you would post something more correct. It annoys me when someone
fusses about another persons posting, and annoys me more when someone does
it using one of my pet peeves(ie, plz, u, thx, or any of that other lazy
typing).
Anyway, considering the context, he was likely refering to the joke about
the ;'s in vb, which was in an episode of the .NET show, I think, or maybe
MSDN TV. Had Chris Anderson and Don Box though...

Anyway, sorry for being assinine about it
