PS: I am not fully aware of the details of the implementations MS did in Linq, but I am happy with the results of such implementations because I see instant results and instant power in performance, which is what I really care about as a developer.
Having experianced what LINQ is all about after hearing about it for some long period of time, I can say I never want to go back without LINQ, infact I wish I could use it in my everyday development work. As I said, I want the future now!.
Me neither. It could be loops that are buried within LINQ, or indexes, I don't know.
The one thing I agree with Thumbtacks about (and it may be the first ;D) is that Anders is a freaking GENIUS. Why? Well Thumb had his chance at discovering and implementing LINQ, but didn't...
