Keith Pleas has wondered about what language features could be put in Visual Basic .NET that would differentiate it from C# (as opposed to tool features such as Edit-and-Continue). My suggestion would be rules. If C# can become Scheme, why can’t VB.NET become Prolog?
Dare Obasanjo sez “…Based on my experiences working with syndication software as a hobbyist developer for the past year is that the ATOM syndication format does not offer much (if anything) over RSS 2.0 but that the ATOM API looks to be a significant step forward compared to previous attempts at weblog editting/management APIs….”
I’ve come to a similar conclusion about RSS 2.0 vs. ATOM syndication but am still not sure about APIs.
