Prism 4 Samples - Inadequate Commenting

I'm looking at the 'Silverlight Only - MVVM Reference Implementation' Prism 4 sample, and there are barely any comments in the code. That is unbelievable!

This forum is not meant as a starting forum. I am not employed by microsoft, if you read pete bown's book you would realize that the best two ways of using mvvm is by the use of commanding or using expression blend using behaviors

This is explained here and way the use of expression blend is needed...

the majority of people that study prism usually start at a mvvm toolkit, than they go to prism. Prism is not meant purely as a mvvm

project, mvvm is just a small part of that goal. prism is an enterprise framework for building silverlight or wpf applications an it really

takes a while to get to use it. If you want to understand the seperation of mvvmThere are plenty of  toolkits I suggest you look at colin blair's example

The prism mvvm uses behaviors or commanding as a framework for mvvm,  as a framework.

@billsim: Part of my learning about Prism is to look at the supplied reference implementations. The one I looked at, 'Silverlight Only - MVVM Reference Implementation' had hardly any comments in the code. That is why I posted. I wasn't asking for lists of other reference material! Thanks for your help, but it's not what I was looking for.
