trivial feedback and micro-optimizations in code reviews

When these are given, is it because there is nothing more important to say?

Or, does such feedback come from people who don't understand the bigger picture or want a quick way to show they've looked at the code without having to take the time and mental effort to truly understand it?

Before commenting

Are you just repeating what's already been said before?

Where/when appropriate, are you correctly attributing others?

Does your comment add value?

Are you adding a new/different/unique perspective?

Have you read the other comments first?

Have you thought about who (possibly many people) will read the comment?

MAUI App Accelerator - milestone of note

MAUI App Accelerator - 10,000 installs

In the last few days MAUI App Accelerator passed ten thousand "official" unique installs.

This doesn't include the almost eight thousand installs included via the MAUI Essentials extension pack. (Installs via an extension pack are installed in a different way, which means they aren't included in the individual extension install count.)

While big numbers are nice (and apparently worth celebrating) I'm more interested in how it's used.
The numbers for that are lower, but still noteworthy. 

It's currently used to create about 25 new apps each day. Which is nice.
I'm also trying to improve my ability to use App Insights so I can get other and better statistics too.

More updates are coming. Including the most potentially useful one...
