    You need to watch the video on C9 about this.
    It is C# 3.0... no core changes to C# .NET 2.0... watch the video?


    Yeah I understand that. My comment might have been a little confusing. What I meant was that the .NET Framework 3.0 is still the old 2.0 compilers and CLR with the WinFX libraries. This will cause confusion when C# 3.0 (with LINQ enhancements, etc...) is released (language, compilers, CLR, etc...).
