.NET Common Type System and Language types

One thing that bothers me about .NET is that the designers decided to have the Common Type System types aliased in individual languages. For example C# has a type int which is an alias of the Common Type System type Int32 among other types.

Perhaps in C# the aliases are meant to syntactically differentiate it from Java:-)

I would like someone from the .NET team to explain the rational of doing this. Quite frankly it can confuse developers.

Google Calendar

Its available to the public and is integrated with outlook, so far I like what I see.
