C# became my language of choice fairly early in its career; by version 2.0 certainly; version 3.0 made it my firm favourite.

I first started to find FORTRAN "fun" when Fortran-77 came along. Then the fun was driving my tyrannical boss crazy by using every new feature (especially the ones he didn't understand). He was a badly, self-taught programmer with a huge ego and no actual skill - hs favourite command was the Computed GOTO!

I have been through at least a dozen other languages between then (40+ years ago) and now and C# is the definite winner - although I worry about some of the new changes coming with v9.0.
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
