I spent the last few days writing the NHibernate in Desktop Apps sample. Since I didn’t feel like doing something adventurous, I choose to use the age old ToDo app as the sample.

Now that I have finished it, I run some stats on it, and it is… interesting.

The funny part about this is that this is for an application that has three forms altogether and very little behavior.

The not so funny part is that I fully expect that extending the application would require very few modifications to infrastructure code, while the support of the infrastructure means that I can churning out new features without really having to think about anything but that specific feature.
