    Whoopy, so you can create an object that is basically typeless and then type it when you declare it in some local procedure or function. I mean, it sounds neat an all, but whats the big whoop? Am I really missing something here or is this just fluff dreamed up by Anders?

    All explanations on the net left my head throbbing. I really don't know why. Using them is dead easy and totally simplifies collection related stuff. All I can say is: try them in C#. Then you'll understand.
