Yes. Thanks Charles and Rico for this interview. I'd really love to see more of these niner-contributed interviews. I think they are really informative and to be able to get our questions and concerns answered like this is just awesome.
1. ScottGu mentioned in the PDC keynote that VS2010 would finally support multiple monitors. Could you elaborate and go into more detail on that? Will i for example be able to have the HTML designer open on one monitor and the HTML markup editor on the other,
and see the changes as i make on either monitor be reflected on the other one (we already can sort of with the split view). That would certainly be a killer feature in my eyes
2. Will Visual Studio move to a Ribbon based UI? Given how many features Visual Studio supports and all the menu items and toolbars, and not nearly everyone knowing about them all, I'd see VS as a prime candidate for "ribbonization". I do know the Ribbon is
a heated topic for many but in my opinion VS would most definitely benefit from it.
I'm looking forward to this interview. A lot of interesting and awesome changes are coming in VS2010. Also, thanks for a wonderful PDC, it was my second time there and i had a blast
This is all well and good if it weren't for the fact that now i'm getting errors thrown on all the video pages that use the Silverlight player (which seem to be this one as well as the one about SP1 at least)
"Unable to load media 'mms://mschnlnine.wmod.llnwd.net/and/rest/of/the/huge/url/to/the/wmvfile.wmv'.
I'm getting this error on everywhere the silverlight player is embedded, even on the frontpage
The download links now are encoded at 500kbps. The "play" links are encoded for 300kbps/100kbps/43kbps streaming. So, using the download link will give you noticeably better quality. I'm also playing around with the encoder. We're also playing with some
First of all, you guys should be using 2-pass VBR instead of the crappy 1-pass CBR. I think you'll find the quality difference is pretty big
500kbits should give you a pretty detailed video at 320x240 res with 2-pass VBR. Try it out!
