LOL! I couldn't agree more. In my mind I think they should have gone all the way with 100% automated reference counting during reference assignment (a-la Visual Basic), with a lightweight garbage collector relegated to detecting and breaking circular-references (something Visual Basic couldn't do) and of course, compacting memory.

This would have offered automatic, true deterministic destruction, while preventing fragmentation. But most importantly, it would have avoided the dreaded Dispose pattern (alongside with the related Finalizer travesty) entirely.

Somewhere I remember reading they avoided this route mainly for performance reasons, what a costly decision in retrospective.
