    I'm running the SLCTP3 build and it is a revelation compared to Beta2, really looking forward to the RC to get Silverlight 4 support back.

    No real point playing with toys I can't use at work. I still use Express / 2005. I doubt MSDN will happen for some time and even I would struggle to make a business case for it...

    I wish that Framework 4.0 would be released first.  It seems to me that it is more mature than VS2010.  Plus, the problems that I have encountered are less likely framework problems than VS problems.  If the framework was released, say tomorrow, I could deploy apps written today.

     

    I opt into whatever I can during the testing phase, hoping to provide as much empirical input as possible through instrumentation.  The three bugs that I regularly encounter in beta2 are:

     

    * UI redraw issues, where I can see through the IDE in some spots

    * IDE hangs either when the app loads, a project loads, or I try to debug a project

    * When getting symbols for the BCL, VS doesn't seem to load the cached local copies

    2005 express ... wow!

     

    at least get the current express version!

     

    btw if you have not heard Manip:  VS 2010 with MSDN gets you TFS licensing now.

    also TFS 2010 can now be installed on a desktop PC for a small / single user case.

    also TFS can be installed on a single server much easyer now than in the past.

     

    also VS 2010 now has only 3 SKU's not like before where they had way to many.

    VS 2010 premium includes the Database stuff that was a seperate SKU before so you can use TFS to store the sql scripts and do Sql server schema and proc version control.

    and well a bunch of other good things are now in the middle SKU that costs the same as the old VS Pro + MSDN cost.

    The multi targeting is much better in 2010, even if your tied to .Net 2.0 it's still worth looking at the upgrade.

    Outside of IIS deployments, do you use multi targeting?  It doesn't seem to me to be such a big issue to ensure that clients have the latest runtime installed.

    well i have about 160 desktops that are locked down and not in one lan. to update the framework version on all of them would be a huge hassle.

    i also have about 100 CE handhelds to update.

    they use .Net cf 3.5

    then i have some apps and some web sites using 3.5 sp1

    and some web services using 2.0 and others using 3.5 sp1

    i would like to move it all to 4.0 this year *IF* i can find a way to make it easy.

    You could use group policy to deploy the framework, on the desktops.  For the handhelds, it is a lost cause.

    Nope can't do that cause they are not any kind of "Group" not my choise but they are a mix of XP Home and Vista Home boxes and no domain at all. just 160 pc's all running the same software. if i could have made them all be XP pro or equiv with a domain i would have.

    The bulk of the product I'm working on is now in .Net 4, but it makes sense to keep a few of our client side API libraries in .NET 3.5 as not everyone is prepared to move their codebase to the new version as fast as us.
