Implementing the singleton pattern

There are various different ways of implementing the singleton pattern in C#.

The implementation that listed below  is thread-safe, simple, and perform well.

public sealed class Singleton
    public static Singleton Instance
            return Nested.instance;
    class Nested
        // Explicit static constructor to tell C# compiler
        // not to mark type as beforefieldinit
        static Nested()
        internal static readonly Singleton instance = new Singleton();
