    Finalization and Performance

    Hello everyone,


    In the section "Finalization and Performance" of MSDN document,

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms973837.aspx

    What means "Older objects needing finalization might have to wait for dozens if not hundreds of gen0 collections before their space is reclaimed."? I am especially confused about what means "wait for dozens" and "if not...", seems there are some dependencies between gen2 collection and gen0 collection?


    thanks in advance,
    George

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
