Topic: Things That Don't Suck

Developers tend to talk about two things: stuff that's brand new, and stuff that sucks. Often at the same time! Let's change things up a bit and talk about some not-so-new .NET things that don't suck. Or less negatively, tips and tools that I've collected that make me ridiculously productive. Like var.

My list is unlikely to be comprehensive, so bring something to share.
