I'm lovin' it Smile | :)

My only criticism is that we just taught people not to call Application.DoEvents() and now we have await running the main message loop which will also cause unexpected re-entrancy. A Microsoftie told me that problem was just being left to the UI developer WTF | :WTF:

Apart from that I think await is great work - including for back end development.

If MS can add async versions of the blocking calls in the framework, that expose progress and cancellation properly, C# 5 may be the version that tips the effort / reward balance and brings multi-threading to the mainstream.

Still lovin' it Smile | :)
