comment Difference between “String” and “string” in .NET and which is best?
Stylistically, I tend to use the lower-case version when I'm referring to the type, and the upper-case version when I'm calling a static method of System.String.

comment Why is + so bad for concatenation?
Sorry. Looks like at least 7 people misunderstood your question from the way it was worded.

comment What would you change about C# if you could?
You see it as lazy, I think telling the compiler something it already knows is a waste of keystrokes and meaningless ceremony. C# needs more type inference, not less. Switching from F# to C# feels like a giant step backwards, most days.

comment What would you change about C# if you could?
F# is a production .NET language that has non-nullable reference types. It's the default for any type defined in F# - you have to go out of your way to get the F# compiler to let you set an F# type to null. Not that this has anything to do with C#, except to show that it can be done.

comment What's the history of the non-official pronunciation of SQL?
@Mr. C - So you're saying SQL isn't an acronym for Structured Query Language? In the unlikely event that's true, it really doesn't matter, because enough people believe it's true to pronounce it as a word the same way they pronounce LASER as a word. They are not wrong, because there is no wrong. I can't even comprehend getting emotionally involved in this debate.

comment What's the history of the non-official pronunciation of SQL?
@Mr. C - Do you say "laser" or "L-A-S-E-R"? Some frequently-used acronyms tend to pronounced as if they're words, and that's not a bad thing.
