@gnat: that other question is clearly not a duplicate (nothing about automated unit tests in there, and completely different focus), and I see no reason to edit the question above to make this any clearer.

comment Is it good practice to inherit from generic types?
@Random832: let me express this differently: in C++, a typedef can be used to assign the name in one place, to make it a "single source of truth". In C#, using cannot be used for this purpose, but inheritance can. This shows why I disagree to Pete Kirkham's upvoted comment - I don't consider using as a real alternative to C++'s typedef.

-1, for not understanding that this is just one way for creating an abstraction by choosing a different name - creating an abstractions can be a very good reason for not adding anything to this class.

comment Is it good practice to inherit from generic types?
@PeteKirkham: defining a StringList by using restricts it to the source code file where the using is placed. From this point of view, inheritance is closer to typedef. And creating a subclass does not prevent one from adding all the constructors needed (though it may be tedious).

comment Does laziness yield more race conditions?
Forgive me, but I have trouble to understand your example. The class Configuration in the .NET framework is not static, the class ConfigurationManager is. But the ConfigurationManager class does not provide writing to a section, that is what the non-static Configuration class is for.

comment Maintenance cost of SIMD programming code base
To my understanding, the OP is asking if there exist solutions with widespread commercial usage. Though I appreciate your hint (maybe I can use the lib for a project here), from what I see RyuJIT is far from beeing a "widely accepted industry standard".

comment What is the value of workflow tools?
@Marco: the conclusion I draw from what you wrote is that the tools are far from meeting the expectations, otherwise developers would not even be tasked to develop workflow logic.
