Don't know if this is an improvement over VS 2010, but it's a definite improvement over the beta. More color in the icons, solution explorer and intellisense is always better. I hope the icons are clearer too: I still have no idea what the "comment selected lines" icon is supposed to be in the beta.
It's weird that they made the menu titles all caps but removed the caps everywhere else. Although I have to say, I didn't even notice the caps in the beta anymore after about a day.
