Completely agree...

Many of the new features to the Microsoft .NET compilers, to me, are completely unreadable.

This all started with generics and LINQ years ago, when they introduced the caret as a compiler symbol.

With code,they have made it ambiguous while with LINQ, they turned SQL upside down.

What is the purpose of all this? To show that you can make programming as difficult as rocket science?

I never use any of these features and stick with the "old ways" of writing code. It is much easier with little to ambiguity.

So what if you save a few milli-seconds here or there. Who cares?
