Agreed to the fact that, Hungarian notation helps us to identify the variable type..
But in the modern world of OO programming where we mostly now-a-days with custom classes and entities. You will mostly be using Custom types for your variable.

In that case its seen people will use objFirstCustomer where obj will stand common for all of the custom types... which doesn't show what data type it is.
Or you'd better name its as curManFirstCustomer where the same curMan doesn't even will denote what type of object is it.
So thus its completely meaningless to use hungrily notation... where its doesn't serve the purpose fully...

Also normal .Net notation keep your code neat, presentable and shows more uniformity...
