But a var (as in C#, say) isn't at all the same thing as an untyped (or rather, dynamically-typed) variable (as in Python). When you write var x = 5;, x is still an int just the same as if you'd written int x = 5;, you're just helping yourself save some keystrokes and letting the compiler infer the type (ok, you're not saving any keystrokes in that example, but not every type name is as succinct as int Poke tongue | ;-P ). You can't then turn around and write x = "snuggles"; or the compiler will throw a fit, unlike Python where it would be perfectly legal. More and more people might be using var, but let's not confuse that with "no one will be using proper typed variables any more!"
