comment Why is the Git .git/objects/ folder subdivided in many SHA-prefix folders?
@Snowman Sure, but when a large quote, taking up almost half the answer, makes a technical claim I know is outdated, it feels off. It would be a better answer if it focused on current filesystems, or alternately gave explicit historical context.

Perhaps it would be clearer if you stated that this might be a historical artifact of the state of technology when git was introduced, because as it stands, for a question asked in 2015, quoting a twenty year old technical limitation (taking up hald the answer) seems confusing.

You did notice that the NTFS performance article you quote from applies to NT 3.5, released 1994, right?

comment Convert this abstract class to an interface
Ah, it would have been best if you'd mentioned this specific use case in your question, since binding to ViewModels requires properties, not methods, and certainly not extension methods.

comment Why can't I refer to an interface inside of generic brackets in a variable declaration?
Doesn't really matter. If this was a simple case, I'd say go with whatever looks nicer to you. Since this is a complex declaration and I don't even know how easy it would be to define bounded wildcards for multiple levels of generic nesting, I'd just stay with Eclipse's suggestion.

comment Should we define types for everything?
A very good point. Explicit types are an important tool for communicating intent, which is especially important across object and service boundaries.
