    Yeah, think that was the same thinking as to why there was no Silverlight 64 bit, would have just been a bloated beast.

    Oh, Silverlight is a 'plugin', a plugin need to be compatible with more hosts, so a 64bit version is necessary, bloated or not.

    On the other hand, Visual Studio is an ecosystem, it need to be compatible with more 'plugins', even itself is assembled by lots of plugins, so having a 64bit version of shell means much more work for internal teams and external partners, different story.
