    This was a very nice talk.

    I can’t say that I like all of it (I get the feeling that C# is stuck where it is right now as long as VB.net takes to cover up), but I do like your overall strategy to co-evolve.

    As I’m more interested in FP: can we hope that you concentrate more on F#? 😉

    When you don’t want to introduce more stuff into C# because the language got to big please to us all a favor and work on the CLR and make it unterstand type classes 🙂 (of course you only have to supoort this in F# 😉 )

    It’d be nice to see C# and VB.NET be identical except for minor syntax differences.

    It’d be nice to see a language conversion assistant to convert from C# to VB and VB to C# from MS.  This would greatly help since many .NET shops want to have/support only one language.
