With all due respect to .net…

…the amount of code duplication in the stdlib is sometimes striking. I found more than 6 implementations of float parsing, for example. No wonder that .NET 4 is so smaller than .NET 3.5 – maybe they just removed some duplicates 🙂

It is noticeable that the team who wrote System.Xml was not connected with the team that wrote System.Globalization. Rather, it was all done in parallel.

Scary industry-grade manufacturing methods…
