vb.net 2005

    Damn. This hurts. But still, honesty, etc.

Its very very good. Doing AD support stuff in VB, the first time since VB 6.0. And my, hasnt it become all purdy and grown up.

Its stolen Java constructs such as "include", and improvded on inheritance, with a mandatory "overrides" tag.

Wow. Its very very annoying, but still incredibly easy to develop in. So if your a Notes guy stuck in a rut, play and see how it fits. Word of advice, DONT allow it to annoy you for the first 24 working hours. Treat it as a new development environment. So having five typeahead boxes on screen at once doesnt piss you off.. tooo much...
