@DaveVoyles - Well I woudln't mind the handwritten text-diagrams if they were pre-written. In fact I prefer listening to the audio while browsing or writing code, so when it is breaking (pausing while writing [can't be a perfect multitasker]) it is a bit tiring to follow

What is a VSIX file? (the link above is broken, has some extra blanks at the end)

How to: Manually Package an Extension (VSIX Deployment):
since VS2015's Blend is using VSX from what I understand, how hard would it be to eventually integrate the two?
I'd like to have Blend's panes inside Visual Studio itself and have some premade window layout called "Blend" to switch the IDE to just show the current Blend layout. Still I would be able to make my own layouts by say just adding the Timeline/Storyboard to my current layout etc.
Have been hoping this for years - I really don't get the dichotomy and switching back and forth between different tools. When people use tabs in browsers to avoid multiple windows, how does one expect them to ALT+TAB between tools? Personally I even hate switching the layout, I want to configure one with some autohidable and some pinned panes and keep using it
also why doesn't Edge support the IE11 Metro app version's HTML meta and HTTP header ways for marking a page as needing ActiveX in order for the browser to offer to the user to open it in IE11?
I don't see why Microsoft shoots devs like that breaking their web apps.
At https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ie/hh968248.aspx, Microsoft mentions:
As a web developer, you can enable the requiresActiveX feature switch either by using this HTTP header:
Or by using this meta element on each affected webpage:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="requiresActiveX=true"/>
BUT THESE LAST TIME I HAD CHECKED AREN'T IMPLEMENTED BY EDGE
combined with my previous comment, if an IE Tab is implemented in Edge, could have a configurable setting to open such pages in a tab or in IE11 application. Obviously user experience should be as implemented in IE11 Metro, where user is prompted first if they do want to open using the IE11 engine that supported ActiveX (not open automatically for extra security)
Now how hard is it for Edge to add an IE Tab? Chrome has one (via an extension).
