Java, to me, is a really nice language to program in. I have been looking forward to the release of Java 8. What features that come with Java 8 do you like most?

The feature of Java 8 that I like the most is Lambdas. But my reason for liking a feature is different from most people's reason. Most people say "I like a feature because it helps me develop this or that." When I like a new feature, it's because it gives me an opportunity to explore the language in ways that I haven't been able to explore in the past. As an author/educator, I'm a learn-a-holic. So I like lambdas because, with lambdas, I can explore and learn new ways of thinking about code.
