    Great video. Quick question. You said that sample analyzing was available in VS2010 Pro and Premium. Is this right? I thought it was just Premium and Ultimate (I have Pro, yet can't find any trace of the "Analyze" menu option). Thanks.

    Not something big but one of those swung-on-and-missed things when the ball was sitting on a tee. Supposedly on a tee. Still missed it. Dervish style. Kewl subject, though; bang-command non-GUI things always stirs the blood for the GUI-lazified types (see point, below).
