I never comment about such things but after reading going through Kobe, I believe Microsoft has finally put out a true "Worst Practices" and "How-not-to" develop an ASP.NET MVC application. Check out these detailed analysis:
High level overiview by Karl Seguin : Kobe - Oh Dear Lord Why?!
Low level analysis by Ayende Rahien : Kobe – In the nuts & bolts and don’t really liking it.
There is nothing worse for a coding newbie than to be mislead with such ridiculous "sample reference application" especially from Microsoft.
