      Soma, you and your group did such a wonderful job with this release! There were a lot of things that really snapped into place at the right time. Whatever process you used to get this one out the door, I would stick to it.

      I know, it sounds lame, but any word on SourceSafe service pack for VS2010 integration? Blushing






      Edit: Never mind, SourceSafe 2005 plus update for VS2008/Vista integrates in Visual Studio 2010 as soon as you have opened a SourceSafe managed project. Thanks.

      I've been using VS 2010 + .NET 4.0 + C# 4.0 since they first Beta (almost a year before), and I'm very pleased that finally they're now officially released.


      But what I like the most is that all these stuff is not anymore the "future" but the "present" technologies. So now we can advance to talk towards a new set of "future" technologies, tools and improvements.


      In particular, I'm very eager to see Anders Hejlsbegs talking about the new C# 5.0 (or even a new language if the changes are too dramatic to be ensembled into our loved C#), considering its PDCs and TechTalks comments about Compiler Services, Metaprograming, Immutability features.
