VB LINQ: getting a bit closer to C# a bit further from SQL

According to Paul Vick VB9 LINQ query syntax will be switched from SQL-like "Select/From" to "From/Select" (Paul calls it "Yoda style" :) used by C# since the begining of LINQ. While for VB it's quite natural to follow SQL syntax (so not troubling poor busy VB developers), working Intellisense is more important. Anyway, I like it.

The changes should be in the next LINQ CTP, which is expected ... (wink wink) really really soon!
