Yeah, big deal, it comes up every now and then.  Would you have rather that he brought up the dead topic?

@Mangix: I don't think anyone really cares whether you agree with some of the chart info.  As far as I can tell, it's 100% on.  The chart could be updated for C# 2.0, which supports function templating, and I believe his analysis of "is expressions" -- or at least the D implementation of them -- is somewhat on-par with the C# "is" expression (bool objInstance is typeIdentifier).

I'm disappointed it doesn't use RTTI to allow dynamic type instantiation.
