I need to compare two custom object lists to see if they both contain the same objects. Each object has an Id property. The lists will not contain duplicates and may not be the same length.

Please try:
bool isEqual = (list1.Count == list2.Count)
            && (list1.TrueForAll( e1 => list2.Any(e2 => e2.Id == e1.Id)));

Sorry so late with this. I must have figured out a way to solve my problem shortly after asking this question, but for the life of me, I can't remember what I did. This is a good solution though and I have no doubt that it would work so I'm going to award the points anyway. Thanks a bunch.
