While I use lambdas in my C# code, I don't consider them especially 'advanced'. Most of the time I'm actually averse to using such features in any language, because they tend to encourage writing clever code rather than maintainable code. Since I have code in the field older than some of you folks reading this, maintainable wins.

I sporadically read news about new C++ features. None of them inspire me, as they whiff strongly of compiler weenies saying "look what I can do!". They are also overly-reliant on templates, and I find the syntax clumsy and verbose. I consider myself well-skilled in C++, and look for productivity-enhancing changes to the language. They're few and far between.

C# is somewhat a different story. Most of the features I read about seem designed to improve productivity and code quality, even when they are dismissed as 'syntactic sugar'.
