Indeed, you're right. MVVM is a simple concept - granted there are subtleties, but these are implementation subtleties and nothing to do with the underlying pattern. What annoys me is when people heap all sorts of different patterns on top and then say, "this is MVVM".

For instance, although we all use Mediators or Messengers, they are nothing to do with MVVM - they are merely a way to help communicate between separated concerns. Similarly, when people say that MVVM is DI or IoC, again, these are just other techniques to help - they aren't MVVM. Properly applied, they help make better code, but they are not part of the core MVVM concept.

Possibly my biggest bugbear is when people think that MVVM means that you have to remove ALL code behind. That's just plain errant nonsense. If you want to trigger an animation just because your window is closing then, by all means, trigger it from code behind.

Ah well, we're just rehashing old ground here.
