Never code in XSLT again !!

A really cool side effect of what is planned for VB9, is you will never have to code in XSLT ever again !

VB9 has full support for XML literals, querying and manipulating XML with LINQ and specifically XLINQ, and it also has the dynamic features such as late binding and dynamic interfaces.  Put it all together and there is absolutely no reason you would ever need to use XSLT ever again.

Of course, some of you might want to code in XSLT, either because you’re into pain or your name is Don Box, but for the rest of the world, working with XML just got a lot more friendly and less painful
