Please explain this lambda expression

 Thread t = new Thread ( () => Console.WriteLine ("Hello!") );
  t.Start();


What version of C# (or .NET Framework) is needed for this to compile?

Is this an lambda expression which uses an anonymous method?

How would you explain exactly what this is?  I am new to LINQ and multi-threading...

Thanks,

You need .net 3.0 to compile lambda expressions. Here's a nice article about lambda expressions.http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb397687.aspxArun

That should compile on .Net 3.0 or above. A Lambda expression is essentially an anonymous method, so in this scenario it is being used in place of a ThreadStart delegate.

> A Lambda expression is essentially an anonymous method

is that true for all Lambda expressions?


Also, in this code, the body {} is basically the body of the anonymous method?

new Thread (() =>
{
  Console.WriteLine ("I'm running on another thread!");
  Console.WriteLine ("This is so easy!");
}).Start();
