I have no desire to master yet-another programming language.  I don't.  I've barely gotten into Java and Python, my C is still good and my C++ is under-used.  I have forgotten Fortran, assembler, and any COBOL that I once knew.  APL interests me as a demonstration of important concepts, not something I want to program in.  I have work to do on my own "language" for use with the Miser Project, and my time is more productively spent there than in mastering C#.

Nevertheless, I find some aspects of C# that are important to identify and appreciate, possibly for application in the Miser Project, and certainly for comprehension in delivering reliable software into the future Microsoft .NET environment.

I am using the O'Reilly C# Essentials as a way to check on areas of C# that attract my interest.  I also have access to the specifications, which is what I normally use when I seek precision and rigor.  But my interest doesn't take me that far at this point.
