Java (or, how things change while you've been away)

I looked at Java today for the first time since the days of Java 1, AWT and the Blackdown Linux JDK. (Not counting the times when I tutored Java programming courses a year or two ago.)

            public void windowClosing(WindowEvent e) {
                System.exit(0);
            }
        });


I wonder whether Microsoft ripped this particular syntactic quirk off for C#.
