After reading a tutorial on c#, I see immediately that it has all the
features that I disliked in Java.

1) Everything is derived from "Object"
2) Some things have value semantics, some have reference
3) No multiple inheritance

I'm not sure about 2 others:

4) No serious generic programming support
5) Only OO supported:

(This is HelloWorld is C#.  Is this actually different than HelloWorld in

using System;
public class HelloWorld
    public static void Main()

        // This is a single line comment

        Console.WriteLine("Hello World! From Softsteel Solutions");
