It's the difference between strongly typed vs. duck-typed. So you get real Intellisense and compile-time type checking, which when coupled with an IDE like Visual Studio (one option among many) you get to see the type errors before running the program. Some of the type definition syntax is more functional programming-like, so you can say "this type is of type A or B", which is neat.
Not getting new stuff when it's new isn't the worst of ideas. It's been true for HDMI/HDTV and it's very true in the web space. While we're at it, .NET 1.0 was a great concept but I'm glad I didn't get aboard back then in retrospective as well.
