since when?

Ran across this xml comment at the top of a class not too long ago:

/// <summary>
/// ...  
/// .Net recognizes all types as objects now, so this could contain 
/// simple variable values or entire objects.
/// ...
/// </summary>

Did .NET at some point not derive everything from an object? And furthermore, do you really have to explain this concept in a comment for whatever developer is going to be maintaining this code after you?

things that make you go hmm…
