While that is certainly true to some extent, it's not the whole issue. I knew a couple of people involved with the standards committee, and very smart folks. Both were very motivated by abstract principles, language esthetics, and compiler implementation concerns. Their assumption was that by satisfying these motivations, usefulness to their target audience (working stiffs like you and I) would just naturally fall out. Sometimes that has been true.

For me, C# on the other hand seems to acquire features that say "that just might be useful" on a frequent basis. Who cares if it's just syntactic sugar? If it makes it easier for me to write clean, quality code, then it's useful. If this happens because of the Microsoft monoculture, so be it. I'm a programmer to pay the bills, not to worship at the altar of someone's polytheistic dogma.
