.NET 2.0, General

What were they thinking?

It looks like VB.NET has generics now, I say now only because I couldn’t find any information about it during the CTPs released in March and May.

I think it is possibly the most convoluted implementation of generics I’ve seen so far. VB.NET now has 3 different meanings for parenthesis, 1) method declaration/usage, 2) array declaration/access, 3) Generic declaration/usage. I pity anyone who needs to read VB.NET code for long periods of time
