The C5 Generic Collection Framework

I have recently come across the C5 Generic Collection Library. This is something worth investigating. The .Net Framework collection namespace is a bit limited, and to me not abstract enough. The C5 enables you to
code to an interface, not an implementation
which is is what I have always wanted.


  1. While this library looks cool, these guys just don't know how to sell it. If nobody knows you got it, then it won't be used. Where have you heard about it?

  2. Isn't it like that with everything?
    You won't find anything unless you keep looking or you are introduced to it. Not everybody knows about nant or springframework, and they are quite popular. MS will keep feeding you with knowledge about their new stuff, not letting anybody miss their releases. This is what education and reading blogs etc. is all about: learning about stuff you didn't know you needed to know about or didn't know where to find.

    A way of promoting things you like is writing about it on your blog. This is definately worth writing about!

    I heard about this through a friend ;)
