I really like the open APIs and the community created around TFS.
can't wait for the next releases of TFS and the power
Keep up the good work!

I'd like to know how TFS (and the rest of VSTS for that matter) relates to Microsoft’s 'eating our own dog food' motto.
Yes, I've heard the VS team uses it.
But what about other teams will be using it ?
Okay, the Windows, SQL, Exchange, Office products are not a match for TFS, but what about other products, smaller ones, like BizTalk, ISA Server, Data Protection Manager.....
I feel (and partially know) that as far as it goes for development tools and platforms there is much less 'eating our own dog food' at Microsoft...
For example, is ISA server really developed with Visual Studio (from what I've heard it is not the case)
wow.... the windows programming bible (Charles Petzold) is now a monitor stand.....
Another thing, C++, COM, WTF ?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?
Do the work and let us do this in managed code!!! get a grip!
Finally, one of the guy mentioned that if the one of the handlers doesn't work properly the UI will hang! I don't think that's acceptable, spin another thread (call each handlers in different thread), cache thumbnails, disabled badly behaving handlers....
don't repeat the mistakes of the past
Make the UI/Shell look nice is very nice.... but I think you must make it multi-threaded
my jaw is on the floor!I didn't think about using generics to extend existing types!!
If flash application are not 'sophisticated' application, so why Avalon capabilities reminds me of Flash ?
I remember seeing some Avalon Demos with very cool animation (like thinks that Flash can do today) if this type of animation is not for LOB/Enterprise apps, why to invest in it.... or is it simply an issue of 'we don't have it (yet) so it's not something you really need'
