afaik, C# borrows one feature after another from FP world - it has
limited type inference, anonymous functions, lazy evaluation (or not?)

it is why i prefer C# to Java (if i will ever use one of these) - Java
don't changed so radically. but really i don't tried C# yet and expect
that it has all the problems of "language created by committee" - it
combines features from many different worlds and should be hard to
master and it should be hard to use various-worlds features together

Best regards,
