No, it's an immutable reference type. There's not much in the way of smoke-and-mirrors involved; you can easily create your own immutable reference type to get the same behaviour.

If string was really a value type, you wouldn't sensibly be able to have a value type with a string member. The entire string would be stored "in-line" within that struct, and you'd end up with stack overflow exceptions everywhere.

It's probably better to say that in some circumstances it's easier to think of string as a value type, even though it isn't. Smile | :)
