I hear you guys about the information Microsoft presents as being like spaghetti.
Maybe there should be a more comprehensive independant "blog search" site dedicated to Microsoft stuff. For example you could have a section called "Office" and under that section is all the bloggers and all the little sites that Microsoft has, and maybe users
could tag information.
It's kinda already being done with MSDN but personally to me that site is a little too much "OMGWTFLOOKLOOKLOOOK!!!!" for me.
Tell me the reason that why c++ programmers should move from 2003 to 2005? As a matter of fact, there are still few people use VS 2005 or write C++/CLI code...So, I prefer VS 2003 or VS6...that's my choice.
Just because .NET 2.0 was hyped doesn't mean VS is all managed now. VC++ is still good for unmanaged C++. I am the coder on a halflife2 mod and the mod is of course unmanaged. We used to use VS2003 ... and VS2005 is soooooo much nicer. Lot's faster, better
intellisense, doesn't take forever to start up, etc.
Or it could be that dev member had a feature that was still under "wraps" and did not know what they could not talk about? The guy who first mentioned Yahoo interop was edited, I can imagine that this was mentioned in the interview after he said it. So she
was mindfull of what she said so it did not get more editing(we all know Charles hates editing )
