OMG Cω is Awesome! You should check it out

I wrote a short article here showing some of the very interesting language features I found in Comega, a language created by Microsoft Research. If code like this (especially lines 18-22 and 26-27)

producing output like that shown below sounds interesting to you then you should have a look.


Update: Jayson has a nice overview of Cw (back when it was called Xen) here.

Where will this be used? What is used for the CLR within Yukon?

Omer - The DB is a static object in the Northwind namespace (which was generated by a tool), and Comega connects to it using an item in the config file. The article goes into more detail.

Sahil - sadly this is only a research prototype (with no plans of turning it directly into a product). It has a similar "non-commercial" license to ROTOR etc. The C# team have made noises about including stuff like this in C# 3.0 which is exciting I think. Bye bye
