Is it possible to reference to environments' System namespace if project contains MyOwn.System namespace ?

below is simple example, there the Array class is not found, since only thing it founds from System. is the Sub class...

----
using System;

namespace MyOwn.System
{
  public class Sub
  {
    const int Number = 5;
  }
}

namespace MyOwn
{    
  public class Sub2
  {
    public Sub2()
    {
      System.Array a;   // Array is not found in System
    }
  }
}

You can use the system namespace but you need to adjust your using statement to give the system namespace an alias.

using RealSystem = System;

And I suggest nesting. both together will solve your problem.

using RealSystem = System;

namespace MyOwn
{    
 public class Sub2
 {
   public Sub2()
   {
     RealSystem.Array a;   // Array is not found in System
   }
 }

 namespace System
 {
  public class Sub
  {
    const int Number = 5;
  }
}

}
