I think you can safely assume they did a few long thorough studies on 
the matter. MS is really good at user studies and product improvement 
through customer feedback. We just disagree with the average MS customer

Some of that is just silly. Example: "Do not use boxing and unboxing 
(...) use wrapper classes.". How often do you test for identity for 
wrapper primitives? If the identity of an int were important, it 
wouldn't qualify as a primitive!
