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...
Having someone describe the power of LINQ to you , and actually experiancing it in development environment are two different things. I am actually not sure why there is not much fuss or buzz about LINQ. People should be excited about it and talking about it
all over the programming places. Its a freakingly scary , jaw-dropping experiance. I mean this will literally change the way we implement ideas and designs of new software. I mean literally!!!!
