    Just what I want, another half baked visual studio. Well, the optimistic side of me thinks that it might be 3/4 baked... with more colors... and less CAPSLOCK.

    It'll probably look the same. Rumor has it that they're adding reactive coffee dispense extensions in this release.

    Coming so soon after 2012, this could be the WinRT equivalent of what happened between .NET 1.0 and 1.1.

    I hope that it follows the every-other-VS-release-is-good principle. If that's the case then I may migrate over from VS2010.

    If we all believed in unicorns and fairies the world would be a better place.

    Are you saying that you skipped Visual Studio 2008?

    @DeathByVisualStudio: IMHO, every SP1 version of VS is good, and hopefully VS2013 is more like VS2012 SP1, or Update 4.

    @felix9: It seems to me that there was a lot of re-architecting performed between 2010 and 2012. I would be shocked if this was anything more than a rebranded service pack. For the most part, I really like VS2012.

    Hmmm... at least we will get Milan. Smiley

    When Herb Sutter said 'first half of 2013', he actually meant End of June, oh well Tongue Out

    I wish I had... VS2008 is the primary reason I am DBVS.

    But your prior avatar was a little dude carrying a VS2010 box not a VS2008 box, IIRC.

    Personally, I can't recall that VS2008 ran any slower than VS2005 or VS2010. The only thing I remember is that I was pretty pissed when they removed the MDI option in VS2010.

    I know that MS has a long history of apparently random product version numbers and names (who can forget the first version of Windows-NT being V3.1) but this business of using years to indicate versions is just so stupid.

    Huh, why? Seems to make a lot of sense to me - in keeping track of product release histories I have to both know the version number and associate it with when it was released, but if the date is just used to indicate the version I only have to remember one thing.

    I was developing for NT in the early days of the product and when the new interface came out for the non NT version of Windows, code named Chicago, NT did not have the new features. The numbering scheme was matching the versions of the other Windows products so that when 3.5 came out, the UI matched the regular Windows that also had the same underlying number scheme.  Or something like that. I did not like being on the bleeding edge of technology. So unproductive. Don't get me wrong though, I knew it was the future so I stuck with it. 

    I'll tell you about my days trying to figure out TFS during its beta phase some other day. Smiley

    I hope we're going to see some additional C++11 language features. Smiley

    @Jsoh:Yeah. I wish the IDE stop shouting at me.

    Please stop developing eye strain to us, we have lots of code to read already.

    Come on now... Every time I read a thread about VS2012 the first complaint people have is the CAPS nonsense... If you don't like that and are using the thing there are half a dozen ways to make that problem for you disappear. That you have to make that problem disappear is an issue I'll agree but its quite old now... As my parents used to say "You are sounding like a broken record"

    Personally We switched all our major dev projects over to 2012 and have never looked back. Now if they could just fix some of the Intellisense oddities in the new version I will be a happy camper...

    I wonder if I'm not at all as easily distracted as I always thought I was, because the all caps menus bothered me for maybe a day, and now all I see is code.

    Plus still complaining about it now seems weird, since it takes one registry key to change.
