VS2010 Parallel Computing Features Tour: Wow!

Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4.0 are in beta 2 right now and should be available in a few months, but after watching videos about the features of C# 4.0 and the features of Visual Studio 2010 I don’t know how much longer I can wait! I just finished watching a video about the parallel computing features in VS2010 and I seriously am drooling over the multi-core programming tools available in the next release! C# 4.0 was introduced by Anders Hejlsberg at PDC 2008, but it is great to see it finally coming to fruition. And with .NET 4 splitting the download into Client and Full profiles it now can be downloaded and installed on most machines at about half the size (30-40MB vs 70-160MB for .NET 3.5).
