Thom Robbins introduces us to the new Class Designer in VS2005.  Looks like someday you'll only need a TabletPC and an ink pen to "draw" your application.  Who needs a keyboard?

    Very cool!

    I noticed that Fields are private-by-default, and Methods are public-by-default.

    I have to question that... I frequently find myself developing private "helper methods", and it seems that methods should be private by default as a security/encapsulation feature.

    I strongly disagree. When designing a new class, one should first think of all the public actions it can perform. Once the "public" functionality of a class is finalized, one can jump into the code view and write the definitions of those methods, adding private (helper) methods when neccessary.
