X# and XQuery

1. Do you think that X# is just Microsoft's reaction to XQuery, as they are both esentially data-oriented programming...

languages, or is it a different approach altogether because it is a functional language where XQuery is more of an object-oriented type of language?

2. Looks like XQuery, which is also a functional programming language, would fit all the X# fuzz. Thoughts?

3. So would X# be a good candidate for initiatives like XQuery and XPointer? Or is it likely to be a support language like EJB's E++?

1. I suspect they will work together.

2. You could be right but I think they might be more than that going on.

3. I suspect it will be a support language -- not an alternative to XQuery.
