While MS gave you the power of Linq in C#....this gives you an infinite amount of possibilities.
That combined with extensions, and you are so much better off than with VB! It's true, you'll have to spend 2 minutes of your personal precious time to write this code once, and to remember to add this extension 'lib' to all your projects where you might need them....boohoo.
Sth like this... one line of code...
public static string Left(this string inputString, int length) { return  new string((from ch in inputString select ch).Take(length).ToArray()); }

Now you can just Left a string by doing string.Left(5)....so easy but 1000 times more powerful (and prob as many times more performant) than VB....
