Understanding the nuts and bolts of the CLR

I noticed Andrew Stopford posted a great blog entry about what books are out there for learning the in’s and out’s of the CLR. Another resource you may want to consider, is the CLR source code itself – Rotor! What better way to understand the nuts and bolts than to dig in under the hood…
