The keynote today was really geat. Bill Gates and Chris Caposella showed off some great stuff in Windows Vista and in Office 12. One of the really cool things announced was LINQ (language integrated query). This is the thing we've been dying to tell you about. Visual Basic will have some awesome features that exploit this functionality to the fullest. Read more from Amanda Silver (VB program manager for the language) here, from Erik Meijer (I blogged about him last night) here, and of course, on MSDN here. Amanda's post has a good description of a bunch of new features we're planning for the future.

More to come...
