  • Your Number 1 Feature in .Net 2.0

    I attended the Sydney Deep .Net User group meeting last wednessday night and Chuck Sterling of Microsoft (see “Ask Chuck“ column on ZDNet) asked me what my favourite feature in .Net 2.o was. It got me to thinking about what others thought on the subject. So here is an informal poll. Let me know what your absolute favourite feature is in .Net 2.0, and I'll post the results in about a weeks time. You dont have to explain why, (ofcourse you can and that will help me qualify the results) but at least let me know what the most important/favourite feature in .Net 2.0 is for you.
