Why LINQ Rocks

Check out this post. Last year I attended Compiler Lab at Microsoft and I worked on a query to do a similar Reflection-like search. While my query didn't cut down on the code size, it felt cleaner - Luke's example is much more striking. It feels the same way when I saw a reduction in code using the yield keyword - the realization of how useful the feature became was very powerful. LINQ is going to be the feature (I think) that will make me want to ditch 2.0 (and 3.0) and go right to...whatever the new version number will be.
