Hi Jon,

Was the discussion in the C# newsgroup not enough 2 weeks ago.

Don't think that the opinion is much different for that.

Visual Basic is even a more on production logic based language then C#.

Waiting for Spec#++ 8.0 , a managed code first class citizen OS based on the
old (at this futur time) Singulary project and virtualization to support old
win32 applications in case someone would still Office 2007 that is really so
old ;-) Too bad if I'm dying before seeing that...

Agreed. Singularity rocks. They seem to be on a 6 month release schedule for
new papers, and I hope they have an update soon.

Of more immediate use would be the Phoenix stuff. Pluggable optimizing
compiler might finally let us inline structs..
