    Just in case anyone is interested you can download beta for the new visual studio 10 from here:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vbasic/dd819153.aspx

    Some interesting features are;

    • VB no longer needs _
      to go to the next line of a _
      statement which is great news
    • There's better support for lambda in VB which is one of my favourite features in C#
    • Another feature brought over from C# is object initialisers which is also very handy.

    There are loads of other cool improvements to both vb and c# so maybe worth checking out.

    That whole Lambda stuff is just plain confusing to my poor VB brain.

    That said, since we are only now beginning to think about moving to 2008, i think i have time to look into it.

    Lambdas amazing for iteration through things.

    (c# style)

    if you have an IList<Book> Books for example you can just filter by going

    Books.Where(book => book.Title.Contains("Microsoft"))

    Brilliant!

    You can sort of do this in vb at the moment with lots of nasty func stuff but its not as clean.
    As far as I understand the plan is to clean it all up.

    I will definately check it out. Visual Studio 2008 is a top notch product. It's so awesome I've even paid £750 quid out of my pocket for Professional version.
