The responses are very funny unfortunately someone might take this seriously so we need to let identity stay in the political area of our society and not let it enter our profession.
Such a sad state but it is what it is for now
How about a Byte? Each one in a group is a Bit. If there are more than 8 in the group, it's a Word of Software Engineers, more than 16 is a DoubleWord (or DWord), more than 32 is a QuadWord (or QWord), etc.
Sure, except that you can inherit multiple interfaces and you still can't instantiate one without an implementation.
Depending on how it is defined, it is possible to inherit an abstract class. Two cases in point are List<T> and Dictionary<object,object>. After all, generics are, for all practical purposes, abstract classes.
Architecturally, they still have highly different uses.
About that, I agree, so why muddy the waters with this new construct that is half interface and half virtual method?
