Interesting observation:

Has anyone else noticed that some of the features defined by the C-omega language (download) are being split between the 2.0 and 3.0 version of the language?  Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s awesome that the language is getting all of these awesome features.  I just find it a bit interesting that they waited this long to release all of the goodness…

Here’s an excerpt from the article link above:

C? includes a number of constructs from the SQL language as keywords. Operators for performing selection with projection, filtering, ordering, grouping, and joins are all built into C?

If you look at the LINQ example in Dan Fernandez’s blog, you will see a slight resemblance.  Any thoughts?
