1. There is no multiple inheritance.
2. Every object is derived from a common class "Object".
3. No pointers... no memory leak problem (as long as you don;t use any unmanaged resources like file handles, sync objects, etc..) Automatic garbage collection.
4. No templates.
5. No function pointers. But there is a better mechanism of delegates.
6. No call back functions. You use events/delegates.
7. YOu will miss common include file where you were able to put all the commonly used file includes at one place.

You question is kind of not very clear. SO the whole discussion is assuming that you are moving from C++ to C#
