Why did MS originally make the decision to maintain these two separate core libs? Maybe they had some scalability issue in mind, but nowadays I never see an application, of any type, that doesn't need both. Does anyone have any inside information on this? It's not really important, but been on my mind for years.
PS. I know what's in the two libs, I know the difference – I'm a big fan of Reflector 🙂 Just wondering what practical use the separation of the two has.
