My #1 reason (so far) to upgrade to Orcas when it ships.

I interupt this regularly scheduled radio silence to bring you important news from the BCL front. That’s right, the BCL team at Microsoft is giving us the BigInteger type. The number of times that I’ve wanted a type like this to deal with large hypothetical scenarios only to get bogged down in implementing simple arithmetic (admittedly on really really really really big) numbers.

Two thumbs up!
