Cw (Comega Web site) is a research programming language done by MSR. It is an "extension" of C# in two major areas:
- A control flow extension for asynchronous wide-area concurrency
- A data type extension for XML and table manipulation
In plain English this means new constructs for asynchronous concurrency as well as relational and semi-structured data access. If you've previously read about Polyphonic C# and X#, then this is basically the "successor".
