VB + VFP = VB.Net 9?

Ken's latest blog entry raises some interesting points - 1) he's taking part in a chat on VB 9 Language Enhancements on Nov 1. We all know that the VFP team is working with the other groups especially as it pertains to data so this may be a good opportunity to hear more about it.

But perhaps more importantly is the following comment:

Parts of Sedna will be written in VB 9.0, and our current plans are to include all of the source code (VFP, VB, C++, etc.) of Sedna with Sedna.

And then considering his comment in the October newsletter about attempts to make aspects of the VFP source available and then also possibly making a change in the EULA to make it distributable...

Combine that with the SednaX project and you have a very COOL open community (not open source) initiative.

It will be interesting to see what (if any) other features from VFP show up in the VB 9 language.
