      Yeah!!! It looks like a whole new world of opportunities. We already got the Whidbey beta but I've got no time to give it a try. What a pity!!!

      By the way, I don't know if this is the right place but I think that .NET 2.0 generics, will allow .net to outperform (even more) Java, because now classes (mainly the collection ones) are, in consecuence, stream lined because they don't need all of that convertion, casting, verification, boxing/unboxing code, do they?

      What you guys think?
