      Why a VB expression and not a C# expression since its a C# project ? What's the benefit of doing that ?

      The reason is that the VB compiler is the only compiler that provided the support required for in-memory compilation of expressions.  In the future we hope to offer the option of using other languages for expressions as well.

      Anders Hejlsberg has talked about Compiler as a Service, meaning in the future we might see the C# compiler be opened up for programmatic use. At least we know that the compiler is being rewritten in C#, so at some point we're likely to see this happen.

      When I do Hello Workflow, this project rebuilds every time I hit the Rkey on my keyboard. So I ended up with "Hello Wokflow 4". VS 2010 doesn't seem to do rebuild on other projects though, just this one.
