I'm curious where you came from prior to C#.

I went from FOTRAN (via VAx Assembler) to C . The C code, for a while, was written like it was FORTRAN using C syntax. Then, suddenly, it wasn't.

As for C#? I used it a few times and even remember the introductory articles and how it was planned to attract and replace VB.NET users.   Also, the resentment that the help library for VS had lots of examples of C# and C++ got the short and smelly end of the stick - I often had to guess at things.

Ya' know - I still think I resent C# because of that
