I don't understand why Oracle did that. They're going to need to make it easier to do stuff like that because of the outrageous amount of money they will now be charging just to use the ing runtime for "commercial use".
There's nothing like shooting your ecosystem in the face with a 10-gauge shotgun.
Oracle "didn't do that".. the lack of operator overloading starting with Java 1.0 in.. err.. 1996? (if my memory serves me right) at the time the Java community and developer where kind of traumatised by anything C++ and custom operator was one of those things. And, at the time, it was Sun (not yet Oracle) that owned and developed Java.
Not that I don't hate Oracle. Just feeling like a little bit of history lesson, that is all!
Same here. Been working on a project that uses Linq to Entities primarily for "Airport" mode in an application.
