I've seen the first part of this Visual Studio history videos and there are interesting things in it, but there is much more to history - people talk there like they act in a sealed vacuum without Java, Unix, Linux, Mac, Google and many other companies and
products all influent Microsoft and Visual Studio.
If you make history film, make it on how history was, not how you wanted it to be.
Microsoft was the first one to create developers community? are you kidding me?
Also where does COM disappear? it is, till this very day, one of the most fundamental technologies that all of Microsoft product really on, .NET 4.0 has new features specifically for COM interop.
