What the World is saying about LINQ


“LINQ is totally awesome. It’s like this thing that you use to condense your entire application into one line of demo code. Sweet!” – Stanley Morgan


 


“LINQ is divine but DLINQ is a delinquent. It gives programmers too much power and makes programming against data way too easy. Is nothing sacred anymore?” – Ned Flanders


 


“Lambdas are old school. LISP had these decades ago. If all you want to do is be a sheep then go right ahead. I prefer ACME.” – Wyle E Coyote


 


“I can’t remember what they are called, but those things you make to build up a result out of a bunch of braces and stuff are really cool.” – Anonymous


 


“LINQ will change the way we think about thinking about programs without requiring us to actually think about them.” – National Research Council


 


“LINQ puts the 3GL back in the 4GLs, together making a 7GL!” – Guy Steele


 


“LINQ is the next best thing since sliced bread. Before LINQ we had to cut those database loaves up ourselves. It was a mess. Now programming against data is as easy as simply selecting the slices we want. Anyone seen that plastic doodad that holds the bag closed?” – Heimlich


“LINQ is the best party game I’ve played in a long time.” – Jeff Bezos

    Totally cool. Sometime reminds me how dBase and FoxPro are coming back in limelight…

    LOL, you made them up yourself, didn’t you? That one from Jeff Bezos was a surprise 😉
