View Thread: Why does Microsoft hate Visio?
  • User profile image


    Another MS product I no longer recommend and seldom use. Instead, I use Visual Studio Ultimate models augmented by Balsamiq Mockups and/or Gliffy diagrams.

    It became too time consuming and frustrating to determine which specific Visio package (SKU) was needed. Features were simply eliminated (e.g. Visual Studio Integration for fwd/rev engineering), crippled, or moved to some not-readily-identifiable product packaging. Bewildering :-/

    BTW: 1GB MSDN download (x86/x64 w/ SP1). Really? 1GB? Good grief.
